The candidates for Sangamon County State’s Attorney continue to clash over what cases they would or would not bring to trial.
Democratic challenger Ron Stradt says Republican incumbent John Milhiser has dropped too many cases that should have been brought to trial, without sufficiently explaining why. But Milhiser says he pursues cases only when there is sufficient evidence to score a victory at trial.
The candidates also disagree on how to handle concealed carry cases. Stradt believes the state’s ban on concealed carry is unconstitutional and says he won’t pursue violations of that law, but Milhiser says it is still the law until the Supreme Court rules otherwise.
