Just because the Perez trial is over (and there will still likely be an appeal), that doesn’t mean the affair is over.
Republican city Councilwoman Veronica Airey-Wilson, former Democratic state Rep.

It may just be a series of procedural hearings, but it’s worth noting that both Giles and Lazu have applied for a special form of probation called accelerated rehabilitation. Hearings are on this program have yet to take place.
If the program is granted in either case, it would not include an admission of guilt.
