Description:State Senator Donne Trotter appeared in court Wednesday in connection with his upcoming trial on felony weapons charges.
Trotter moonlights at a security company.
He was arrested at O’Hare last week when security inspectors found his gun and some bullets in his carry-on bag.
Trotter says he forgot he packed the gun.
Prosecutors decided to forgo Wednesday's preliminary hearing and take the case directly to a grand jury.(0:50)
