State's Attorney Objects to Christian Guilty Pleas, Asks Judge to Reconsider Sentence


Calvin Christian may not get off as easy as he thought after entering multiple guilty pleas on a number of pending offenses last month.

 

The Springfield reporter and blogger pleaded guilty… even as he continues to pursue a lawsuit accusing city cops of harassing him.

 

Christian received court supervision for at least four of those pleas, on charges that included reckless driving and fleeing police following a traffic stop.

 

But State’s Attorney John Milhiser wants the judge in the case to reconsider that sentence.

 

Milhiser says state law only permits supervision twice in a 12-month period… not four times simultaneously.

 

There’s no hearing date set yet for Milhiser’s request, and it’s unclear if Christian would be allowed to withdraw his plea if the sentence were changed.
