When testimony concludes today, Judge Amy St. Eve will decide whether Tony Rezko should be released on bond. He's been in jail since he was arrested Jan. 28.
Though the circumstances are different in the Rezko case, St. Eve is the same judge who allowed bond for two defendants accused of having ties to Hamas terror funding. St. Eve allowed the two free on bond despite passioned pleas from the prosecution to keep them behind bars so they wouldn't flee.
Muhammad Salah and Abdelhaleem Ashqar didn't flee and were ultimately convicted on lesser charges.
During and before trial, St. Eve set tight restrictions on the two, including house arrest and requiring a GPS monitoring bracelet for Ashqar.
