|PCLP: Going Undercover as an Attorney: Inside Operation Greylord|
|Date/Time: Wednesday, February 19, 2014 12:00:PM|
|Location: Room 118|
This Wednesday, February 19th, the Program in Criminal Law and Policy is proud to host Terry Hake.
In April 1980, after serving four years as a prosecutor, Terry Hake agreed to assist the FBI and the United States Attorney's Office in Chicago in an investigation of the Cook County Court System.
For three and one half years, he worked undercover posing as a corrupt prosecutor and accepting bribes from attorneys and later as an attorney in private practice making payoffs to judges and court personnel for the dismissal of cases. The investigation, known as "Greylord", resulted in convictions of 18 judges, 57 lawyers, 10 law enforcement officers, and other court personnel. It remains one of the FBI's most successful undercover investigations.
Come hear the inside story of that investigation and the ethics, courage, dedication, and sacrifice it required.
We will meet in Room 118 and pizza will be served at 12pm
Hope to see you all there!
