State's Attorney Challenger Questions Prosecutor's Discretion


The challenger in the race for Sangamon County State’s Attorney thinks incumbent John Milhiser may be too quick to dismiss some cases.

 

Democrat Ron Stradt questions some recent decisions where suspects were released without being charged or were allowed to plead down to a lesser charge.

 

Stradt says there should be more disclosure about the reasons why.

 

Milhiser says he can’t proceed with cases when there is not enough evidence to go forward, and defends plea bargains as a way to ensure that someone is punished for a crime without taking a chance on acquittal at trial.
