Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert Sentenced to Prison

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert (R-IL) has been sentenced to 15 months in prison in addition to two years supervised release. Hastert was charged with structuring bank withdrawals without reporting where the money was going. As the investigation into the structuring charge continued, it was revealed that Hastert was paying "hush money" to boys he had molested when he was a high school wrestling coach.


Hastert also admitted that he had molested boys in the past. 

Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert on Wednesday was sentenced to 15 months in prison and ordered to pay $250,000 in a hush money case that revealed he was being accused of sexually abusing young boys as a teacher in Illinois.

He was also sentenced to two years of supervised release.

For the first time, Hastert admitted to Judge Thomas M. Durkin in open court that he abused at least one boy. Durkin, of the Northern District of Illinois, told Hastert that he should participate in a sex offender treatment program. The judge also cautioned Hastert to refrain from communicating with his alleged victims.
