Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is up for resentencing Tuesday.
Blagojevich will appear at Tuesday's hearing via teleconference.
The resentencing hearing comes after last year's appeals court decision that threw out five of the 18 counts the former politician was convicted of in 2011. The reversed counts were tied to Blagojevich's effort to swap President Barack Obama's former Senate seat for a Cabinet position in the president's administration back in 2008.
Blagojevich, who is currently serving a 14-year sentence in a Colorado prison, wants his prison sentence reduced down to five years. Prosecutors say his prison sentence should not be reduced.
