Foti Plea Hearing Scheduled
According to Dane County Judge Steven Ebert's clerk, a plea hearing in former GOP state Rep. Steve Foti's case has been scheduled for tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in room 8-A of the new Dane County courthouse.
Ebert is presiding over the cases of Foti, the former Assembly majority leader, and current state Rep. Scott Jensen, the former Assembly speaker.
The judge recently presided over the plea deal of former GOP state Rep. Bonnie Ladwig.
Dane County DA Brian Blanchard sent out a media announcement this morning:
Judge Ebert has scheduled a change of plea for Steven Foti for 1:30
tomorrow (1/13) in the courtroom in the new courthouse assigned to Judge
Fiedler (8A). It is scheduled for a plea hearing only. All defendants in
the case, including Mr. Foti, continue to be presumed innocent of any
offense. This office will not have any other comment in advance of the
hearing, and I do not anticipate saying anything outside court tomorrow.
