Blagojevich gets 14 years in prison for corruption

CHICAGO (AP) - Rod Blagojevich is headed home to his family
after a federal judge sentenced him to 14 years in prison for
political corruption.

The disgraced former governor of Illinois cited author Rudyard
Kipling on his way through the lobby of Chicago's federal
courthouse.

He told reporters that this was a time to be strong, to fight
adversity and to head home to his children and explain his
sentence.

The usually jocular politician took no questions from reporters.
