Derrick Smith Trial Set for October 21
October 21, 2013. That's the trial date a judge set for Chicago Democrat Derrick Smith, who is facing federal bribery charges. Smith was recently re-elected despite being voted out of the House by his peers in August.
He's pleaded not guilty to a charge that accuses him of accepting a $7,000 bribe during an FBI sting. The October trial date means he'll serve nearly a year in office before facing trial. The trial is expected to last a week.
