The trial of the man accused of murdering Chandra Levy, Ingmar Guandique, is scheduled to begin on Oct. 18, and it’s expected to once again bring former congressman Gary Condit back into the limelight.
On Monday, his attorney, Bert Fields, released a statement saying that it would be “inappropriate” for his client to comment during the trial, but Condit does have a book in the works.
“Among other things, the book will reveal the incompetence, recklessness and immorality of some very well known figures and institutions,” Fields said in a statement.
He said that Condit will withhold publication until the trial is concluded.
After Levy’s disappearance in 2001, the whole case sparked a media firestorm after revelations that she had been involved in a relationship with Condit. But the story was knocked out of the news after 9/11. But the Levy case did cost Condit his House seat.
