Former publisher pleads guilty to fraud scheme

CHICAGO (AP) — Former Chicago Sun-Times publisher David Radler pleaded guilty Tuesday to taking part in a scheme to siphon away $32 million from Hollinger International Inc., the newspaper's parent company, for himself and others.

Radler, who resigned in 2003, entered his guilty plea to one count of mail fraud in federal court. He has cooperated with prosecutors, who have said the investigation is ongoing. Radler remains free on bond. His sentencing was postponed because it is dependent on his cooperation with federal authorities.
