Hale Trial Pushed Back

A federal judge rejected a bond request from jailed White Supremecist Matt Hale but the judge did give his lawyers a trial extension.

Hale, an East Peoria native, has been jailed since January on charges that he solicited another man to kill U.S. District Judge Joan Lefkow.

On Wednesday, prosecutors filed a second count that alleges Hale solicited a second confidant to kill the judge. Hale’s attorneys are asking that the additional charge be tried separately from the original case against.

The Judge moved the trial to April 5, and granted Hale’s request that the government pay for his defense.
