Milhiser: Charges Unlikely In Concealed Carry Cases Unless Other Offenses Are Involved


Sangamon County's state's attorney won't issue a blanket statement telling county residents they can carry concealed weapons before a new state law is approved.  But John Milhiser acknowledges that as a practical matter, there is very little chance he will prosecute anyone for doing so at this point unless some other offense is involved. 

 

Milhiser says he has personally reviewed every such case since a federal court struck down Illinois's ban on concealed carry last year, and has not filed charges in any of them. 

 

There are several pending cases that were filed before that court ruling... but Milhiser says they could very well be dismissed once a new concealed carry law is enacted.
