Wright Fights Indictment

New, 3 comments

State Senator Roderick Wright was indicted last year on eight felony counts for various offenses related to possibly not living where he says he does (he claims to live in an apartment in Inglewood in his district, but prosecutors accuse him of living in a house in Baldwin Hills, which is not in his district). Now his lawyers are trying to get the indictment thrown out, saying "that prosecutors misled grand jurors," and that the 2008 searches of Wright's two residences are "irrelevant," since most of his stuff was in Sacramento by then.
