Ad Feedback

CHICAGO - 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.
