May 30, 2012 (CHICAGO)

In court Wednesday, prosecutors and Beavers' lawyers agreed to come up with a trial date. The judge says it could happen by November or December.

Beavers is charged with failing to pay federal income taxes on more than $225,000 he took from his campaign funds and county expense account to gamble and boost his city pension.
