Money Laundering in the Public’s Eyes

Chicago Tribune reports in this article that attorneys for Tom Petters are trying to have the trial moved outside the state of Minnesota because they claim that he can not receive a fair trial there. His legal defensemen argue that the Minnesota news media has painted a public portrayal of Petters as a man in an orange jail uniform who will surely get convicted. His attorneys have suggested Iowa and Wisconsin as other locations.

Being that Petters has been charged with conspiracy, fraud and money laundering in a huge $3.5 billion scheme, do you think that Tom Petters will be able to find a fair trial anywhere?
