Pre-trial wrangling in Illinois lawmaker bribery case
CHICAGO (AP) — Pre-trial wrangling continues in the case of an Illinois state lawmaker charged with bribery.
At a status hearing Thursday in Chicago, an attorney for state Rep. Derrick Smith said federal prosecutors have not handed over all evidence and other case materials to the defense. Government representatives disagreed.
Smith was arrested in March. He's accused of accepting a $7,000 bribe during an FBI sting in exchange for helping what he thought was a daycare center obtain a state grant.
