Day 1- The Trial of Former Governor Ryan

Yesterday was day one in the trial of former Illinois Governor Ryan. The indictment here charges typical white collar offenses like false statements, mail fraud (premised on intangible rights), Hobbs Act, RICO and tax.  Dan Webb is representing the former governor and taking a very slow road in picking the jury. To the prosecutor's objection, he noted the high profile nature of the client charged in this case. For more see the Chicago Tribune here  and CNN here.
