Government seeks to file Cellini papers under seal

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In a court filing this afternoon, prosecutors asked a judge to file a 23-page motion regarding Downstate developer William Cellini under seal.

The filings regarding Cellini have been under seal as his lawyers cite sensitive wiretapped information. But the overhears involving Cellini date back to the investigation of Tony Rezko. Cellini was caught on numerous tapes with state board member and prominent fund-raiser Stuart Levine. Levine, a chief cooperator who has admitted to a litany of crime, was the key witness in last summer's trial against Rezko.
Conversations between Cellini and Levine were played at Rezko's trial. The content under seal is presumably new material.
