O'Donnell attorney releases statement regarding criminal allegations

An attorney for Sedgwick County Commissioner Michael O'Donnell has released a statement regarding recent criminal allegations.

The statement, released by Attorney Mark Schoenhofer, LLC, says:

"Mr. O'Donnell will not try this case in the press, regardless of the ongoing public criticisms of him by other members of Sedgwick County government. Mr. O'Donnell will not publicly address these criticism, or otherwise answer that which is no more than campaign rhetoric and chest beating by certain members of the Commission and other third floor offices. The truth regarding all criminal allegations will come to light in Mr. O'Donnell's trial, where we are confident he will be acquitted of all criminal charges. Mr. O'Donnell will have his day in court."
