It looks like former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will get some of his first visitors this month.
Sam Adam and Sam Adam Jr., Blagojevich's attorneys from his first corruption trial, will head west to the Federal Correctional Institution-Englewood later in April, the Chicago Sun-Times' Michael Sneed reports.
Adam Jr. told Sneed his dad talks to Blagojevich about twice a week while the former governor serves his 14-year sentence.
The attorney, who told Sneed he'll likely bring his 4-year-old son to Colorado, said they're like family.
Blagojevich left his Ravenswood Manor home on March 15 for prison.
"Saying goodbye is the hardest thing I've ever had to do," Blagojevich told a swarm of reporters as he left his house. "I'm leaving with a heavy heart and a clear conscience, but I have high, high hopes for the future."
Last week, Patti Blagojevich publicly questioned her husband's 14-year sentence compared with a 10-day term the same judge handed to an ex-Blagojevich aide.
In a Facebook posting, Patti Blagojevich says she "can't help but wonder what planet we are on" where one person gets ten days and another 5,110 days.
