Federal prosecutors have rested their case in the corruption trial of ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

But the former governor's defense attorneys won't start their case until Monday. U.S. District Judge James Zagel said Tuesday that he'd delay the trial to allow the defense time to prepare witnesses.

When the trial began June 3 it was widely believed prosecutors could take as long as two months to get through their case. Blagojevich's attorneys said some of the defense witnesses had not expected to take the stand until August.

Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to scheming to trade or sell President Barack Obama's former Senate seat and plotting to launch a racketeering operation in the governor's office.
