U.S. Attorney Carol Lam will hold a press conference today regarding a “criminal matter.”

According to several recent reports, Lam asked her staff to wrap up their investigation of contractor Brent Wilkes, who was linked to the Randy “Duke” Cunningham scandal, before she steps down from office Thursday.

Wilkes was the contractor named as “co-conspirator No. 1” in the plea agreement signed by Cunningham, but has not been indicted.

The conference is at 12:15 p.m. today. Check back later for more information.
