Prosecutors say they want to stick with October 21st as the sentencing date for Tony Rezko.

A jury convicted Rezko in 2008 of squeezing kickbacks from businessmen eager to land state contracts.

Rezko's sentencing was repeatedly delayed to leave the possibility he could testify at convicted former governor Rod Blagojevich's trial, but the government never called him.
