Blagojevich prosecuters want to limit talk of trial on reality show

By AP/St. Louis Public Radio

Chicago – Prosecutors have asked former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich's attorneys for an agreement to limit what he might say on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" TV show.

Federal Judge James Zagel said yesterday he is also concerned that whatever Blagojevich says on the show might cause complications at trial.

Blagojevich was in New York last week as taping got under way for the show, which is scheduled to air on NBC in March.

The former governor's trial is set to begin June 3.
