Hastert pleads guilty, expected to serve six months

ABC 7 Chicago is reporting that as expected, former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, entered a guilty plea in federal court in Chicago. The Plano Republican agreed to deal from prosecutors that recommends that he serve no more than six months in prison.

Hastert is accused of violating banking laws and lying to federal officials in regards to making payments to a male student who says the former high school wrestling coach sexually abused him.
