The Springfield reporter now involved in a legal tangle over multiple traffic offenses and a pending civil lawsuit says Sangamon County prosecutors are targeting him in order to protect police.
Calvin Christian entered guilty pleas last month on several of those traffic charges… even though he claims the traffic stops are part of a coordinated campaign of harassment against him by city cops. State’s Attorney John Milhiser is now seeking to have the sentence of court supervision in four of those cases overturned… saying it was improper to let Christian off so easy.
Now, appearing live on 970 WMAY, Christian accuses Milhiser of refusing to make deals with him because Milhiser is trying to preserve his working relationship with the police department. Christian says he wants a special prosecutor named to handle the remaining cases against him.
