She reached a deal to plead guilty Wednesday to one misdemeanor count of commercial bribery.

As a condition of the agreement, Berry must testify against Richmond. While working for Chase Bank in Naperville, Berry allegedly falsified documents to help Richmond persuade others to invest in construction of a new church building.

    So why do they show a white mans hands in the photo?

      This reporter didn’t state the woman’s race but yet they put up a picture of a white persons hands and by closer observation they look to be of a white male. I think this paper either knows more about the story or they are very racially biased.
      I also think this paper either should report all of the news or not at all.
      Why does this pare not report on the black on black crimes? Is that not news?

        They report Black on Black crimes all of the time and you know it. You comment about them all of the time and you always have something stupid and racist to say.
