CHICAGO (AP) -- The judge earlier warned Sam Adam Jr. that he would be stopped if he tells jurors about witnesses the prosecution did not call in the evidence phase of the trial.
Judge James Zagel says it's improper for the defense to imply that witnesses who weren't called -- including convicted political fixer Tony Rezko -- would have helped Blagojevich's case.
Adam said Monday he was willing to go to jail rather than follow the order; Zagel says he doesn't expect that to happen.
Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to charges including that he schemed to sell President Barack Obama's old Senate seat and illegally pressure people for campaign contributions.
