Reginald Potts: Errata

To find all posts about Nailah Franklin, type "Nailah Franklin" in the box at the top left corner of this page and hit RETURN. To find all posts about Reginald Potts, type "Reginald Potts" and do not include his middle initial or honorifics. Thanks.

The Political Cat knows that there are many people out there (all around the world, it seems) waiting to see what happens in the murder of Nailah Franklin. We apologize for giving the erroneous impression that Mr. Potts would be having his arraignment hearing today. The Chicago Defender announced
today that the arraignment would take place on Thursday, January 10th.

Mr. Potts is facing 16 counts of murder in the first degree, four counts of aggravated kidnapping and one count each of vehicular hijacking and robbery, for a total of 22 counts. The prosecutor plans to seek the death penalty if Mr. Potts is convicted.

Mr. Potts' trial judge will be assigned at the arraignment hearing. Nailah Franklin was reported missing around September 19th, and her body was found on September 27th 2007. Mr. Potts has been held without bond for her murder since December 10th, 2007.
