Hastert Court Appearance Set For Thursday

(Chicago, IL) — Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert will be in court this week in Chicago. Hastert is expected to enter a plea on Thursday after being indicted last week on federal charges. He is accused of trying to hide withdrawals from bank accounts to pay three-and-a-half-million-dollars in hush money. The payouts allegedly went to a former male student with whom he had a sexual relationship 30 years ago.
