Christian: Politics at Play in Prosecution


The plaintiff who accuses Springfield police of a campaign of harassment against him says he was prepared to drop that case as part of a deal to resolve some of the multiple traffic charges against him… but says State’s Attorney John Milhiser scuttled that deal for political reasons.

 

In a letter sent to media outlets, Calvin Christian accuses Milhiser of trying to intimidate him because his pending federal lawsuit would show that Milhiser’s office was involved in the police campaign of harassment.

 

Milhiser has said his office objected to Christian’s sentence on the traffic charges because state law doesn’t allow him to receive supervision on multiple charges… and that’s why he’s now trying to have that sentence overturned.

 

Christian says his lawsuit will proceed… and will help to expose corruption in, quote, “the good ol’ boys network” in Springfield and Sangamon County.
