Some of the jurors from Gov. Rod Blagojevich's corruption trials agree with the stiff 14-year prison sentence handed to the former governor today.
About half a dozen jurors from both trials were present for the two-day hearing.
James Matsumoto, the foreman of the jury at Blagojevich’s first trial, said he and the other jurors were "satisfied" by the sentence.
In the first trial, jurors agreed on just one of 24 counts — that Blagojevich lied to the FBI.
John McParland, a juror at the second trial, said he saw a less-cocky Blagojevich in court today but wasn't sure the former governor actually apologized for his actions.
"He's like two different men," McParland said.
"His apology was a little circumspect," Matsumoto agreed.
