Once scheduled for January, the start date for Blagojevich's next trial is now April 20, said Randall Samborn, a spokesman for the U.S. District Court in Chicago. The ex-governor and reality show star is accused, among other things, of trying to gain financially and politically as he weighed who to name U.S. senator when Barack Obama was elected president.
U.S. District Judge James Zagel will preside over the trial, just as he did during the first one earlier this year.
