Obama's pal Tony Rezko gets 10½ years
Antoin “Tony” Rezko was sentenced today to 10½ years in prison for extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business or regulatory approval while he was a top fundraiser and adviser to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Rezko's daughter broke down sobbing in the courtroom as U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve handed down the sentence.
"You were engaged in a very, very serious offense, Mr. Rezko" the judge said as she imposed the sentence.
