State’s attorney candidate Ron Stradt is issuing an apology to a woman whose arrest became a campaign issue.
Stradt singled out the case of the woman who worked in the Sangamon County building because he said it appeared that State’s Attorney John Milhiser had not taken action in the case.
Milhiser says because of a possible conflict of interest, he referred the case to a special prosecutor.
Stradt said he found no evidence of that, but now acknowledges that the case was in fact referred as Milhiser had said.
He issued a press release apologizing to the woman for public embarrassment she endured as a result of having her case brought out in the media.
