Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was just sentenced to 14 years in federal prison on corruption charges.

Blago was convicted back in June after a jury found him guilty of 17 separate felonies, including bribery and extortion, for trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama.

Blago apologized today during his sentencing hearing claiming, "I've had plenty of time to reflect on all that's happened, I'm here convicted of crimes and I am accepting of it, acknowledge it."

Blago added, "I am of course unbelievably sorry."

He has 90 days to turn himself in.
