About this Article

Patrick Fitzgerald has prosecuted reputed mobsters, terrorists and Illinois governors. Thursday night, the former top prosecutor got a crack at Socrates. Yes, that Socrates, the Greek philosopher. The result? The jury -- an audience of more than 1,000 people -- found Socrates guilty but spared him death by hemlock and fined him instead.
