Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds doesn't break stride as a television cameraman takes a tumble Monday morning amid the media crush that covered the congressman's arrival at the Cook County Criminal Courts Building on August 7, 1995. Reynolds, accused of sexual relations with a minor, was convicted in 1995 on sexual misconduct and obstruction of justice charges and sentenced to five years in prison. Reynolds was later convicted in federal court in 1997 of 15 additional counts of bank fraud, wire fraud and lying to the Federal Election Commission.
