Lawyers For Joliet Woman Up On Teen Sex Case Want What Cops Got

The attorneys for the woman charged setting up a sex date with a teenage boy want the police and FBI to turn over the evidence against her.

Lawyers for the Joliet woman charged with setting up a sex date with a teenage boy in the house she shares with her septuagenarian boyfriend want the cops and FBI to hand over whatever it is they got on her.

"We've received the state's initial response, it's our opinion it's incomplete," said Steve Landis, one of two attorneys defending Margarita Hernandez against charges she orchestrated a sex romp with a 15-year-old Chicago boy.

Landis and attorney Daniel Locallo filed a motion asking for discovery from the Joliet and Chicago police departments, as well as from the FBI.

Hernandez, 32, was arrested in October. She and her live-in boyfriend, 76-year-old veteran weekly newspaperman John Gabriel, are both precinct committeemen for the Troy Township Democrats.

Gabriel has claimed Hernandez was framed by the enemies he has made over the years he has worked in community journalism.
