McGee federal trial date set
Milwaukee Alderman Michael McGee Jr. faces a trial date on federal charges of April 7, a little after he goes before the voters for re-election to his City Council seat on April 1.
Federal prosecutors said they expect the trial to last 10-12 days.
During a hearing today, McGee's attorney, Calvin Malone, said he wanted the trial concluded before the May 19 state trial.
McGee faces federal charges of bribery, extortion and attempting to skirt reporting requirements for a large cash transaction. He faces state charges that allege his involvement in a beating conspiracy and election law violations.
