Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has a federal prison identification number. The Federal Bureau of Prisons has given Blagojevich the number 40892-424. Typically, once inmates are assigned a number, it is their individual number throughout their prison term. It is also typically affixed to their prison clothes. The 55-year-old Blagojevich has been ordered to report to prison on March 15. While he has asked to be incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution Englewood in Colorado, he could be sent elsewhere. Blagojevich in December received a 14-year sentence. He was sentenced on 18 corruption-related counts, including charges that he tried to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.
