Government offers more evidence against Jeremy Hutchinson

The Justice Department this week filed a motion about additional evidence it wants to introduce in the trial of former Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson on charges that he converted campaign money to personal use and dodged federal income taxes.

The U.S. attorney’s office wants to introduce so-called 404 B evidence, which sheds ill light on a defendant but is not a part of the specific charge he faces. Some of these transactions came up during his testimony at the recent hearing at which he’s seeking to suppress evidence from a computer provided to the FBI by his former girlfriend, Julie McGee.

The filing offers details on how Hutchinson allegedly misapplied a bank loan and campaign money to pay personal expenses.

For example: The government says Hutchinson obtained a $50,000 loan from Centennial Bank, nominally a “business” loan. Shortly after, he withdrew $7,000 in cash and deposited it in a Bank of America account. Later he put a $500 check from the Saline Republican Party and $23,000 from the Centennial account into a different “business” account. From there, he made personal expenditures, the government contends: $3,500 to his girlfriend Julie McGee and $11,500 in child support to his ex-wife Stephanie.
