Monk has requested he serve his time at a federal prison camp in Terre Haute, Ind. He is scheduled to report July 6.

Monk, who said he was unemployed and living in Downstate Decatur while testifying during Blagojevich's first trial in 2010, never mentioned his former boss and friend in his brief remarks Tuesday to Zagel.

"I'm prepared to serve my sentence," he said. "... And I look forward to coming back a better person ... a better father, a better husband, a better friend."
