Dennis Hastert Pleas Not Guilty In Hush-Money Case

Former US House speaker Dennis Hastert has pleaded not guilty to charges in a federal hush-money case.
During Hastert’s first court appearance since he was indicted last month, defense attorney Thomas Green entered the pleas on Hastert’s behalf. He also waived the reading of the indictment.
The judge is considering conditions for Hastert’s pretrial release.
