Lawmaker released on weapons charge
CHICAGO – A veteran Illinois state senator charged with trying to board a flight with a gun and ammunition in a carry-on bag was released on bail Thursday.
A Cook County judge set bond at $25,000 for state Sen. Donne Trotter, who recently announced he was running for Jesse Jackson’s old seat in Congress. Trotter’s defense attorney argued for reasonable bail citing Trotter’s decades of public service and 26-year marriage.
“He’s lived a life dedicated to serving the people of Illinois,” defense attorney Joshua Herman said.
