Perez Co-Defendants Due In Court

Jeff Cohen

June 23, 2010

Just because the Perez trial is over (and there will still likely be an appeal), that doesnít mean the affair is over.

Republican city Councilwoman Veronica Airey-Wilson, former Democratic state Rep. Abraham Giles, and former city employee Edward Lazu are all due back in court this morning. It may just be a series of procedural hearings, but itís worth noting that both Giles and Lazu have applied for a special form of probation called accelerated rehabilitation. Hearings are on this program have yet to take place.

If the program is granted in either case, it would not include an admission of guilt.
