Closing arguments are set to begin Monday in the federal corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Testimony wrapped up Wednesday without the ousted governor taking the stand in his own defense.
“It is my decision, on the advice of my attorneys, not to testify in this case,” Blagojevich announced in court.
The two-term Democrat was removed from office in January 2009 amid accusations that he had attempted to sell the U.S. Senate seat that had been occupied by Barack Obama before he became president.
