Van Til Reportedly "Frazzled" Over Impending Trial Date

25 Nov

Some even go so far as to suggest that George Van Til is mounting a Vinny the Chin Gigante defense.  Van Til is reportedly out of sorts after learning that his trial, scheduled for December 9, 2013, will not be continued as requested.  Van Til has been charged with 6 counts of Wire Fraud and two counts related to Obstruction of Justice.  Witnesses who work closely with Van Til now report that he is a different person.  “He comes to work looking like he did not sleep” according to one source.

Van Til is represented by former Gary Mayor and Democratic Political insider Scott King.  King requested a copy of the Government’s witness list but that request was denied.  Standard practice is to provide the list immediately before trial. That seems especially appropriate where an indicted defendant remains in a supervisory position over potential witnesses.   Sources say that Van Til maintains meticulous files on Lake County politicians and has a lot of information to trade for his freedom.  We will see if he is willing to pay that price.

    Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr h as shown his love of VanTill. I certainly hope VanTill shows his love back, sharing his information with law enforcement authorities.

    “Sources say that Van Til maintains meticulous files on Lake County politicians and has a lot of information to trade for his freedom.” He better be careful, that’s the kind of stuff that get’s you in a car “accident”

    The deadline for GVT to cut a plea deal is December 2nd. That doesn’t give him a whole lot of time. Monday is D-Day.
