Danya here. The press conference with Joel and Andrew finished at about 5 p.m. and I’m back to the office to write. I have meeting I must attend first so the full story won’t be up for some time.
But, a quick recap.
Judge Richard Schoenstedt denied the prosecution’s motion for a gag order.
He denied the defense’s motion to exclude from trial evidence relating to the Bolingbrook Police Department’s rules and regulations
Hearing dates were set for Oct. 23 (to discuss issues relating to jury selection) and for Nov. 20 (to discuss all other pre-trial issues).
Schoenstedt did confirm that overhears had been granted and that he was reviewing the tapes from them. Brodsky and Abood declined to comment on when the overhears began and ended.
Be back later with more.
