Judge Denies Motion to Dismiss in Conceal Carry Case

A Sangamon County judge has refused to throw out the case against a man charged with carrying a concealed weapon… despite a federal appeals court ruling that the state’s ban on concealed carry is unconstitutional.


Defense lawyers for Donnell Jackson argue that he should not be prosecuted under a law that the state has been ordered to repeal.


But prosecutors say the law was valid and enforceable when Jackson was arrested… and remains so now… and say the case should proceed.


Judge Leslie Graves set Jackson’s trial for June 17th… just days after the court deadline set for Illinois to repeal its ban.
