CHICAGO, IL (KSLA) – A Chicago Defense Attorney who helped get singer R. Kelly off the hook, hopes to do the same with a former Illinois Governor.
In closing statements today, attorney Sam Adam Jr. will try to persuade the jury to clear Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich of the corruption charges against him.
Adam is known for getting singer R. Kelly acquitted of child porn charges. The defense in the Blagojevich trial rested without calling a single witness.
