Blagojevich Not Fulfilling Bond Terms: Prosecutors


Prosecutors want a judge to order convicted former Governor Rod Blagojevich to appear in court to sign what they contend is overdue paperwork allowing the ousted governor to remain free while awaiting sentencing. 

In a filing this week , government attorneys say Blagojevich hasn't met bond conditions Judge James Zagel set after jurors convicted him on 17 of 20 corruption counts last month.

Zagel told Blagojevich he must secure the bond that's permitted him to remain free since his 2008 arrest by posting his Chicago home and another property. If he flees, he'd lose them.

The filing says defense attorneys have turned over some but not all necessary documentation.

Prosecutors want Zagel to require Blagojevich to come to court Friday.

A message left for Blagojevich attorney Sheldon Sorosky wasn't immediately returned.
