CHICAGO (AP) - Imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's brother says he's writing a book about his own three-year-long legal ordeal that resulted in prosecutors dropping all charges against him.

Robert Blagojevich told The Associated Press on Friday he's hoping to finish the book by year's end. It is currently titled, "How I Survived the Federal Justice System."

Both brothers were initially tried together. Jurors couldn't reach a verdict in Robert's case and convicted the impeached former governor on only one count.

Prosecutors dropped the case against Robert Blagojevich and retried his brother, who was then convicted on several counts including that he tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat. Rod Blagojevich is serving a 14-year prison term.

Robert Blagojevich insists his brother is innocent.
