federal prison

US Marshalls Service

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he spends his time sweeping and mopping floors while serving a federal prison sentence after corruption convictions.

Blagojevich tells WMAQ-TV in Chicago in an interview from the Colorado prison released Monday that he still maintains his innocence and hopes to make another appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The 60-year-old is 5 1/2 years into a 14-year sentence, including for trying to sell former President Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat.
