Francke trial date in question:
Defense attorneys may seek to postpone the trial of a Lake County sheriff's deputy accused of destroying text messages that police say he made to a prostitute. Eric Francke, 33, of the 43000 block of Forest Drive in Antioch, faces up to three years in prison if found guilty of obstructing justice and destroying evidence in order to thwart his own prosecution. Defense attorney Chris Lombardo said he may need to postpone the Oct. 21 start of Francke's trial because he will be on trial in another case. Lombardo said he will know next week if Francke's trial needs to be delayed or can continue. Francke remains free from jail after posting 10 percent of his $10,000 bail. Lombardo is due in court Oct. 10 to let prosecutors and the judge know whether he will have to postpone the trial.
