A one-time prominent Democratic fundraiser has been sentenced to nine months of home confinement.

Joseph Cari is one of the first notable figures to be sentenced of those who took plea deals and testified against Rod Blagojevich.

Cari was convicted of attempting to extort a kickback from an investment firm seeking business from the state teacher pension board.

Prosecutors decided not to call Cari as part of their streamlined case at the retrial this year.
