On March 1, 2005, White posted an article on Overthrow.com entitled
Lefkow had discovered her husband and mother murdered in her Chicago home. An intense manhunt ensued, with authorities initially focused on white supremacists. The year before, racist Matthew Hale was convicted of soliciting Lefkow’s murder after he was unhappy with the outcome of his civil case. But disgruntled litigant Bart Ross later admitted to the slayings in a suicide note.
White was charged last October with attempting to induce others to do harm to a juror in the Hale trial.
He pleaded not guilty this morning to his indictment. No trial date has been set.
The prospect of having Lefkow details introduced into the case adds a different dimension to the case, White’s lawyer said.
“They’re going to try to present evidence regarding Lefkow’s situation,” White’s attorney, Nishay K. Sanan said. “We’re asking that this case be transferred outside of the district.”
White is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center downtown. A judge has refused to release him on bond.
White also faces charges in Roanoke, Va. for allegedly making threats to, among others, a Mayor in New Jersey, a bank worker involved in a credit issue and a potential witness in a housing matter, Sanan said.
