Sen. Trotter Released On Bail

A veteran Illinois state senator charged with trying to board a
flight with a gun and ammunition in a carry-on bag is out on bail.
A Cook County judge set bond at $25,000 for state Sen. Donne Trotter, who
recently announced he was running for Jesse Jackson’s old seat in Congress.
Trotter’s defense attorney argued for reasonable bail citing Trotter’s decades
of public service and 26-year marriage.
The Chicago Democrat was released from custody a short time later. He refused
to answer reporters’ questions before walking away from the courthouse.
Trotter was going through security at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport
yesterday when an X-ray screening spotted an unloaded handgun and a clip with
six bullets in his garment bag.
