New trial date for Oglesby eaglet handler

Posted by wlpo on October 29, 2014

A second trial for an Oglesby man who is in trouble for handling baby eaglets will happen next year.

Steve Patterson was in front of Judge Dan Bute Wednesday morning. Bute set February 23 as a new trial date. A jury deadlocked earlier this month during a first trial where Patterson faced charges of illegally handling the protected species near his home.

Patterson says he was just trying to save the eagles.
