One of the refrains during the first criminal trial of McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi was that Special Prosecutor Henry Tonigan had not handed over evidence in a timely fashion.
Or, maybe not at all.
Today, Judge Joseph McGraw ruled that Bianchi attorney Terry Ekl has the right to depose Quest officials about that evidence.
The order Judge McGraw issued today concerning the motion sanctions for discovery violations by the special prosecutors is below:
“Our motion included a request that the Quest investigators be required to testify under oath concerning the discoverable material not turned over to us,” Ekl explained.
