Defense Takes Over in O'Donnell Trial

February 27, 2019 - 11:21 pm

The trial of Sedgwick County Commissioner Michael O'Donnell is one step closer to going to the jury. 

KSN News reports prosecutors brought more of O'Donnell's campaign workers to the stand Wednesday, to ask if they got money for free.

Several said no, but former campaign staffer Jack Masterson said he received six checks from 2015-16 and said he didn't remember doing any work for the money he received and even inquired about delivering a gift basket.  

The defense asked for an acquittal on all charges, but Judge Eric Melgren denied the request for an end to the trial, which continues on Thursday.
