From National Lawyers Guild Chicago.

Chicago, IL — Three young men arrested in a Chicago house raid in advance of last month’s NATO demonstrations are expected to be indicted this Tuesday in a highly controversial case involving infiltration and never-before-used Illinois state terrorism charges. The three defendants, Jared Chase, Brent Betterly, and Brian Jacob Church, were charged with material support for terrorism, possession of an incendiary device, and conspiracy, and have been held on $1.5 million bond for nearly a month as they await trial. The State’s Attorney has made numerous allegations, but has so far produced no physical evidence of criminal activity, not even the search warrant or affidavit of probable cause.

When: Tuesday, June 12th at 11:30am
