After a State Police investigation, Sangamon County’s top prosecutor has concluded that a Springfield cop used justifiable force when he shot a suspect during a struggle last month.
State’s Attorney John Milhiser says the incident shows the dangers that police face every day. The suspect who was shot in the leg is now facing multiple felony counts following a grand jury indictment Thursday.
Antonio Florence is accused of home invasion and sexual assault for an attack on a woman at a residence on Gregory Court.
He’s facing additional charges for the violent confrontation with police who responded to a 911 hangup call from that residence.
