CHICAGO — Former Governor Rod Blagojevich has been moved to a lower-security part of the prison where he is serving a 14-year sentence on corruption charges.

The Sun-Times reports Blagojevich was able to walk outside his wife Patti, and their two daughters, during a recent visit.

He’s serving his time at Federal Correctional Institution Englewood near Denver.

His attorney says Blagojevich has daily contact with his family, and teaches the history of war battles to other inmates.
