Charges Against Robert Blogojevich Dropped

Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)–August 26, 2010.  Federal prosecutors have dropped all four charges against Robert Blagojevich, brother of former Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich. 

Prosecutors intend to begin the retrial of the former governor in early January 2011.  The judge approved for payment of two attorneys to represent Rod Blagojevich at taxpayer’s expense since the former governor no longer has the funds to pay for representation.

Neither Blagojevich brother appeared in court for today’s proceedings.
