State's Attorney Challenger Accuses Milheiser Of Breaking Pledge


In the homestretch of the campaign, the challenger for Sangamon County State’s Attorney is accusing incumbent John Milhiser of breaking his pledge to bring criminals to justice.

 

Democrat Ron Stradt is pointing to several cases where he says Milhiser failed to bring charges, even though there was probable cause to do so. One case involves three men suspected in a street shooting who were arrested and held for five days before Milhiser dropped the charges.

 

Another case involves a lawyer who was the victim of an extortion plot. Stradt says authorities wanted a search warrant to learn whether the lawyer had in fact had sex with a minor and then paid money to conceal it, but Milhiser refused to authorize the warrant.

 

Milhiser says both cases were thoroughly reviewed to see if there was enough evidence to pursue them further, but there wasn’t.
