Sentencing day for Dennis Hastert

Posted by wlpo on April 27, 2016

CHICAGO (AP) – Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert is stepping before a judge to learn his punishment in a hush-money case centered on sex-abuse allegations.

At today’s hearing in Chicago, federal prosecutors intend to focus on accusations that Hastert molested at least four students when he coached wrestling at Yorkville High School. The 74-year-old pleaded guilty to breaking banking law as he sought to pay someone $3.5 million to conceal secrets from his past.

Hastert’s team is hoping for probation.
