CHICAGO (WLS) -- Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has asked for a presidential commutation, according to a Chicago Sun-Times report on Friday.
Four months ago, a judge re-instated his original 14-year prison sentence.
Blagojevich's request came just days after his attorney asked for another sentencing hearing.
A president may commute a sentence to time served or reduce it, but those requests are rarely granted.
Blagojevich is scheduled to be released from prison in May 2024.
