what is wrong with criminals , dont they learn after a the phone was invented to NEVER TALK ON THE PHONE!!!

HEY STEVE WILL THERE BE ANY PHOTOS LIKE THE FAMILY SECRETS TRIAL, IF SO WHEN WILL THEY BE ON LINE TO VIEW

STEVE WARMBIR REPLIES: There are photos of the bombed out Berwyn business in the Sun-Times photo gallery. I don't expect the U.S. Attorney's office to put photos online on their website, simply because there is nowhere near the interest in this case, that there was in Family Secrets. If there are any compelling surveillance photos, I'll work to get copies, but so far, they've been like most surveillance photos, a bunch of guys hanging around.

Also: Do you know if Sarno will testify, and, if so, when?

When would be a good day to come and watch the trail as a spectator besides today? Thank you.

STEVE WARMBIR REPLIES: Michael Sarno and his attorneys have not said whether he will testify, but given that all defendants' attorneys recently estimated that all the defense cases will only take, altogether, a few days at most, I suspect Sarno will not take the stand.

If you can come Friday this week, it should be a good day. Kyle Knight, a key government witness, will be getting grilled on the stand by defense attorneys, and it should make for interesting testimony.

Thanks. Do they break for lunch? If so, do you know what time? I can only come on my lunch hour.

STEVE WARMBIR RESPONDS: They do. Generally, it's from noon to 1:20 p.m. or so, although that can vary a bit depending on the testimony.

wait.the public can come and watch this trial? what time do u have to get there to be able to enter? can u give me some info on this.i had no clue!

STEVE WARMBIR RESPONDS: The trial goes from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays in Judge Ronald Guzman's courtroom on the 12th floor of the Dirksen Federal Court Building, 219 S. Dearborn. While the courtroom can get crowded, observers can usually get a seat.
