If Mike Danton’s lawyers have it their way, the Blues center will not have his trial in the St. Louis area. His attorneys have asked a judge in East St. Louis Illinois for a change of venue because the publicity from the case, they believe, will make it difficult for local jurors to be impartial. They have also asked to have tapes of calls he made to be thrown out as evidence for the prosecution. Last month Danton was arrested in connection with an alleged murder for hire plot, which was believed to target his agent David Frost.
