Blagojevich likely to testify in corruption trial this week

CHICAGO, IL (KFVS) - After promising for more than a year and a half to take the witness stand in his corruption trial, Rod Blagojevich is likely to do just that as early as Tuesday.

The ousted governor will be under oath, like his multitude of TV interviews. Experts say the grilling he gets from prosecutors will likely be a lot tougher than anything he faced on a talk show.

Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to all charges stemming from accusations of trying to sell President Obama's Senate seat.
