Former Congressman Schock asks court to drop 1 charge

PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Attorneys for former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock have asked a judge to drop a charge against him, saying it’s too broad. Schock’s attorneys in a motion filed Friday say a charge alleging theft of government funds contains too many allegations, makes it too difficult to prepare for trial, and is therefore improper. The (Peoria) Journal Star reports prosecutors have until May 29 to respond to the motion.
