Beavers’ attorneys asking to stay free pending appeal
Attorneys for former Cook County Commissioner William Beavers will go to court today, to ask a judge to allow him to remain free on bond pending appeal.
Beavers was sentenced to six months in prison after being convicted of tax evasion, for failing to repay money he took from his campaign funds for personal use.
He was ordered to surrender next month.
But, his attorneys will ask Judge James Zagel to allow him to stay home until their appeal of the conviction is sorted out.
