Jury selection set for Beavers tax trial
CHICAGO — Jury selection is slated to begin in the federal tax-evasion trial of an influential Cook County commissioner.
William Beavers is accused of diverting thousands of dollars from campaign coffers for personal use without reporting it as income on his returns. Prosecutors say the 77-year-old Democrat spent much of the money on casino gambling.
Potential jurors will fill out questionnaires Monday and then face one-by-one questioning in court by the presiding judge, James Zagel.
