A Doctor’s Challenge From Pekin Federal Camp Outcome of the Trial

November 8, 2012. Waiting for the outcome of the jury was probably one of the worst emotional times of my life. The wait seemed like forever, but within four hours, they had come to a decision. We were then called back to the courtroom and handed the jury’s decision.
