Charges dropped against Blago's brother 'in interests of justice'

August 26, 2010

Federal prosecutors announced today they have dropped all charges against Robert Blagojevich, the former governor's brother.
Assistant U.S. Atty. Reid Schar said the government was dropping two counts of extortion conspiracy and one count each of wire fraud and extortion because of "the disparity in the roles" of the two brothers and "in the interests of justice."
