Attorneys for former Governor Rod Blagojevich are once again seeking to cut his fourteen year prison term. Blagojevich's attorneys argued Tuesday before the Chicago based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the Democrat's record of good behavior since entering prison five years ago calls for a shortened sentence. Prosecutors object to the request, noting Blagojevich has never admitted committing major crimes.The three-judge panel will rule in the coming months.
