A federal judge has set former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's sentencing on corruption charges for Dec. 6.
The new date appeared on a U.S. District Court's website Monday.
A federal judge in September indefinitely delayed an Oct. 6 sentencing date for Blagojevich apparently because it would have conflicted with the start of a related trial that month.
The Illinois Supreme Court has suspended convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's license to practice law.
The court acted Wednesday in response to a request from the state Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.
The Chicago Democrat has been a lawyer since 1984. But he hasn't practiced law since joining Congress in 1997.
Blagojevich was governor from 2003 to 2009, when he was impeached and removed from office.

Federal prosecutors are making their case for why Rod Blagojevich should not be allowed a third trial.
In a lengthy filing, prosecutors say Blagojevich's convictions were just.
And, just as importantly, the trial was done in a fair way.
