      Blagojevich's attorneys plan appeal

      Attorneys for Rod Blagojevich have formally started the process of appealing the former governor's conviction and prison sentence.

      Blagojevich's lawyers notified the U.S. District Court in Chicago Monday they intended to appeal to a higher court.

      The 55-year-old was convicted earlier this year of corruption charges.

      He's set to report to prison in March.
