Prosecutors Want to Keep Hastert Evidence Secret

Federal prosecutors on Friday petitioned a judge to keep secret their evidence in the case against former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, who pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges of trying to hide cash transactions and lying to the FBI about it.
Reports say Hastert allegedly paid someone $2 million to keep quiet about sexual contact with a male student while he was a teacher and coach in the 60s and 70s.
Prosecutors said sensitive information about the case shouldn't be public because it would affect the privacy interests of outside parties. They also argued before Judge Thomas Durkin that Hastert's defense attorneys do not oppose the motion.
Prosecutors asked the judge to only distribute information to key defense personnel and witnesses, and asked that copies not be made without the court's permission.
