Prosecutor Charged With Theft Of Evidence

The Illinois ARDC recently filed ethics charges against a former Assistant State's Attorney for Coles County. The prosecutor had been assigned to one of two cases arising out of a traffic stop in which marijuana had been seized. After one matter had resulted in a guilty plea and the other dismissed, the prosecutor is alleged to have falsely told a sheriff's deputy that the drugs were needed for "court purposes". The allegations include a theft charge but do not say what happened to the missing evidence. (Mike Frisch)
