Rezko: Judge releases hold on 27 properties;keeps some Rezko money

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve partially released the $8.5 million in property and cash that once secured Tony Rezko's bond. She ordered that about $100,000 in cash be left behind after prosecutors sought a restraining order on the money to fulfill forfeiture they will seek in the future.

Rezko surrendered to jail upon his conviction last week, releasing liens held against 27 properties posted by friends and family members supporting the North Shore businessman. Rezko, a former fund-raiser for Gov. Blagojevich and U.S. Senator Barack Obama, is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 3.
