Department of Justice prosecutors and attorney for former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock ( R-Illinois ) met in a Chicago federal appeals court April 18 regarding corruption charges against the ex-politician, Politico reported.
In November 2016, Schock was indicted on several charges, including wire, mail and tax fraud and misappropriation of government funds, among other things. He resigned in March 2015.
Schock's attorneys have said that federal prosecutors went too far in charging him.
An appeals-court ruling may take weeks or months.
