Edgar Steele's lawyers, Robert McAllister and Gary Amendola, obtained selections of Larry Fairfax's handwritten journal notes last week after U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill issued a ruling he now says was a mistake.
Now prosecutors are investigating whether McAllister and/or Amendola orders by allowing Cyndi Steele to read those notes.
Cyndi Steele read a statement at Fairfax's sentencing Wednesday that Assistant U.S. Attorney Traci Whelan says contained information directly from Fairfax's notes.
Whelan said her office will investigate; Winmill said appropriate action will be taken if Steele's lawyer did violate the court order.
Fairfax (pictured) was sentenced to 27 months in prison Wednesday.
