Federal prosecutors are calling for former Illinois Senator Thomas Cullerton to serve up to 18 months in prison in his embezzlement case.  The 52-year-old from Villa Park pleaded guilty to embezzlement back in March, admitting to pocketing more than 248-thousand-dollars in salary and benefits from the Teamsters union despite doing little or no work.  A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 21st.
