Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich earlier this year had a high-powered criminal defense attorney at Winston & Strawn working for him to fend off a five-year federal probe, but on Tuesday he appeared with a little known Chicago criminal defense lawyer from a small firm. Attorney Sheldon Sorosky of Kaplan & Sorosky represented Blagojevich during a federal court bond hearing in Chicago after a two-count criminal complaint alleging fraud and bribery was delivered earlier in the day.
