HAM­MOND — A hear­ing Tues­day morn­ing on a sealed mo­tion in Lake Sta­tion Mayor Keith Soderquist’s two crim­i­nal cases was it­self sealed.

At­tor­neys could not com­ment on the hear­ing af­ter­ward, so it is un­clear what was dis­cussed.

The hear­ing was in re- sponse to a sealed mo­tion that Scott King, Soderquist’s at­tor­ney, had filed sev­eral weeks ago.

Soderquist and his wife, Deb­o­rah, are charged with il­le­gally us­ing money from his cam­paign fund and money meant for the city’s food bank for per­sonal gambling trips in one case. They are also charged in a sec­ond case along with Deb­o­rah Soderquist’s daugh­ter, Mi­randa Brak­ley, who is charged with steal­ing money from the city when she worked there as a city court clerk.

Soderquist and his wife are ac­cused of help­ing her after the fact.
