From ABC News:
The judge in Dennis Hastert's hush-money case signaled Wednesday that he will consider the former U.S. House Speaker's lies to investigators that he was being extorted on a false claim of sexual abuse at his sentencing hearing, where prosecutors say one person who says he was abused will speak.
Someone identified in court papers as "Individual D," one of at least four former students who prosecutors say Hastert sexually abused, would be one of two witnesses who want to make statements at the April 27 sentencing, prosecutors said at a hearing in Chicago. The other is a sister of a now-deceased accuser.
