(Chicago Tribune) A former Republican House speaker was found guilty of a sexual assault case spanning over 30 years. Dennis Hastert was sentenced in a Chicago Federal Court to 15 months in prison after paying out $1.7 million dollars to hush up his victims. Judge Thomas Durkin said, “Nothing is more stunning than having ‘child molester’ and ‘speaker of the house’ in the same sentence.” Before Hastert became the house speaker and supporter of George W. Bush, he was a wrestling coach at Yorkville High School in Illinois where he sexually abused his students. Prosecutor Zachary Fardon says Hastert’s reputation is destroyed.
