Sangamon County prosecutors are objecting to the guilty pleas entered last month by the Springfield reporter who is accusing city police of harassing him.
Calvin Christian pleaded guilty to multiple offenses, including reckless driving and fleeing police. He was given court supervision in four cases, allowing him to avoid jail and keep his license.
But State’s Attorney John Milhiser believes state law does not allow supervision with guilty pleas in so many cases simultaneously. He’s asking the judge in the case to reconsider the sentence in those cases. There's no hearing date yet on the state's attorney's motion, and it's unclear if Christian would be allowed to withdraw his plea if the judge does reconsider the sentence.
