William Beavers sentenced to 6 months in prison

September 25, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Prosecutors recommended a 21-month prison sentence, but Beavers said he should receive probation and no prison time.

As the ABC7 Chicago I-Team has reported, Beavers argues that, for years, he took from his campaign funds then paid the money back. It was only until he says he refused to cooperate with the FBI and IRS against commissioners John Daley and Todd Stroger that he was charged with the crime.
