McHenry County's top prosecutor is on trial for a second time.

State's Attorney Louis Bianchi was cleared of corruption charges in his first trial in March, but the special prosecutor in the case has a second indictment against him on separate charges. He's accused of official misconduct for lessening penalties or dropping charges in three cases.

If convicted he faces up to five years in prison.
