Stuart Levine, the star witness in the case against Illinois powerbroker William Cellini, from the witness stand described backroom deals to squeeze a movie producer for a political contribution.
A sentencing hearing for the man responsible for bringing down impeached former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been delayed.
Stuart Levine, a key witness in the investigation of Blagojevich, instead will be sentenced in July, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. It's not clear what forced the delay.
Prosecutors have recommended a light sentence for Lavine, who also testified in the trials of William Cellini and Tony Rezko. They said the case against Blagojevich was made possible because of the former state board member's cooperation.
Rezko and Cellini were both convicted. Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
