Antoin "Tony" Rezko sentenced

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald speaks to reporters at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in Chicago after Antoin "Tony" Rezko was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in prison for extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business or regulatory approval. Fitzgerald called St. Eve's decision a "stiff" but "appropriate sentence." "I don't know how many times we've had sentences of ten and a half years" in public corruption cases, Fitzgerald said." "It's a bit of a wake-up call."Michael Tercha, Chicago Tribune
