A top attorney for ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich wants the judge to release him from the defense team on Blagojevich's second corruption trial.
Rod Blagojevich is an insecure man who talks a lot, but he is not a criminal, his defense attorney told jurors Tuesday during closing arguments at the ousted Illinois governor's corruption trial.
Jurors who will now decide the fate of disgraced former Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich have two very different portraits to ponder: The Democrat is either an insecure bumbler who talked too much or a sly, greedy political schemer determined to use his power to enrich himself.
Rod R. Blagojevich's defense lawyer clashed with the judge Monday over his planned closing arguments, pledging to go to jail if he is prohibited from telling jurors about witnesses that prosecutors never called.
Chicago attorney Sam Adam Jr. also has said he'd be interested.
Mr. Sorosky said Sam Adam Jr. will ask to withdraw from the case at a Friday hearing before Judge James Zagel, who has the final say in whether Mr. Adam can leave.
