HOUSEHOLDER TRIAL


DAY 1- HOUSEHOLDER TRIAL
THE LARRY HOUSEHOLDER TRIAL IS NOW UNDERWAY. THE FORMER SPEAKER OF THE OHIO HOUSE IS ACCUSED OF TAKING BRIBE MONEY TO BAIL OUT A POWER COMPANY. 
BOTH SIDES LAID OUT THEIR PLANS FOR THIS TRIAL. ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT, LARRY HOUSEHOLDER USED CORRUPT LEGISLATION TO BECOME HOUSE SPEAKER. THE ATTORNEY FOR THE GOVERNMENT TOLD THE JURY IT PLANS TO CALL TO THE STAND TWO OF HOUSEHOLDERS ALLEGED CO- CONSPIRATORS JUAN CEPEDES AND JEFFERY LONGSTRETH. BOTH MEN ALREADY PLEAD GUILTY TO RACKETEERING. IT'S ALL PART OF THE GOVERNMENT'S PLAN TO SHOW THAT HOUSEHOLDER WAS HUNGRY FOR POWER AND REGULARLY CALLED ON FIRST ENERGY TO FUND HIS RUN FOR OFFICE IN RETURN FOR HELPING THEM PASS HOUSE BILL 6. HOUSEHOLDERS' DEFENSE TEAM COUNTERED SAYING THE GOVERNMENT GOT IT WRONG AND THAT THERE WAS NO CORRUPT AGREEMENT.
