Former Mayor Stephen Reed remains the only person charged in the state Attorney General's office investigation into Harrisburg's financial mess.

Reed maintains he only ever acted to benefit the city.

Reed's team also argues the statute of limitations has expired on many charges.

They're hoping Judge Kevin Hess rules Jan. 6 on their petition to toss those charges, and a separate decision that would force the city to turn over public documents, which Reed's lawyer Henry Hockeimer says he needs to defend his client.
