Blagojevich arrest marks 4th anniversary

December 9, 2012

The former governor was taken into custody at his home in the early morning hours in 2008, out of the sight of the media.

He was eventually convicted of 18 counts, including illegal shakedowns for campaign cash, lying to federal agents and trying to sell a United States Senate seat.

Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years and is serving his time at a federal prison in Colorado.
