Ex-House Speaker Dennis Hastert legal issues

Editor's note: Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert faces sentencing today at 11 a.m. ET after previously pleading guilty to two counts of banking violations. Prosecutors say Hastert, now 74 and ill after suffering a stroke in November, sexually abused five students when he was a high school teacher and wrestling coach decades ago in Yorkville, Ill. He is accused of using illegally structured bank withdrawals to pay out "hush money" for his misconduct. Hastert cannot be charged for sexual abuse because the federal and state statutes of limitations have passed, but one of his accusers, identified only as "Individual D," is expected to testify at today's hearing. The Chicago Tribune notes that this testimony could prove crucial in determining whether Hastert gets prison time. We'll be following the proceedings and will bring you updates. - Rebecca
