U.S. District Judge James Zagel can't wait to hang Cook County Commissioner William Beavers...He wants the trial FAST FAST FAST! Like a Jimmy Johns Trial!U.S. District Judge James Zagel said this morning he’d like to set a trial date for Cook County Commissioner William Beavers before the end of the year.
Zagel asked government prosecutors and defense attorneys for Beavers, who faces tax evasion charges, to consider dates in November or December so the trial can be held before 2012 ends.
Aaron Goldstein, one of Beavers’ attorneys, also told Zagel that the defense team is seeking copies of notes from a 2009 interview federal investigators conducted with Beavers. The defense so far has only seen a one-page summary of Beavers’ answers during the interview.
