Rezko trying to get conviction overturned

November 4, 2010 (CHICAGO) A lawyer for Rezko was in court Thursday.

The defense attorney told the federal judge that he will file a motion related to the honest services law.

The Supreme Court ruled that law unconstitutional. The law was partially used to convict Rezko in 2008.

Rezko is set to be sentenced on January 28 for his role in a scheme to solicit kickbacks from companies seeking state contracts.
