Hale Changes Attorneys

(Chicago-AP) — White supremacist Matthew Hale has dropped his attorneys and hired a new one, his cousin.

A motion granted yesterday means Timothy Murphy will represent Hale going forward. Hale had been represented by Thomas Durkin and Patrick Blegen of Chicago.

Hale was found guilty in April of four counts, including solicitation of murder and obstruction of justice.

Murphy says he’s not a white supremacist. He will take over the case, which includes post-trial motions, sentencing and any appeal.

Murphy won’t say why Hale made the decision.

Hale faces up to 50 years in prison at his sentencing, which is scheduled for August 23rd.
