Bianchi Judge Considering Directed Verdict

While Judge Josephy McGraw was considering whether or not to dismiss the case without hearing any defense witnesses, McHenry County State's Attorney Lou Bianchi and his defense counsel Terry Ekl walk out of the courthouse so the Chicago Sun-Times photographer could get something other than a mug shot of Bianchi for its files. Other took photos, too.

2 PM – In the criminal trial of McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi and his secretary Joyce Synek, Winnebago County Circuit Court Judge Joesph McGraw is considering whether to dismiss charges against the two.

  1. This post was created before the judge came back.

    Now that Mr. Bianchi’s case has been dismissed, when do we get our $400,000 back?

  2. I read this “journalism” in the Chicago Tribune and laughed;

    “In a stunning reversal of fortune for Bianchi, Judge Joseph McGraw made his ruling without Bianchi‚Äôs team even having to put on their defense.”

    The Trib reporters obviously should look up the meanings of “fortune” and “misfortune.”

    The only people who are stunned are the idiots who believed with no hard judicial standard evidence, any conviction was going to happen.

    Cal is right again on this, if anyone cared to ask him.
