About this Article

Mark McDonald will have to hire his own attorney to fight theft and corruption charges after the former DuPage County Forest Preserve District administrator was denied a taxpayer-funded lawyer Wednesday. McDonald, 53, of Wheaton, had asked Judge Blanche Hill Fawell for a public defender because of "insufficient funds" to continue paying his private defense team.
