Koehler Not Pessimistic about Appellate Court Special Prosecutor Payment Ruling

Ken Koehler

McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler was anything but downbeat about the 2nd Appellate Court’s decision upholding Judge Gordon Graham’s payment of $250 per hour to the Special Prosecutors who unsuccessfully prosecuted McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi.

“Obviously, we would have liked to have had it go our way,” Koehler told McHenry County Blog

“I can’t say I’m not disappointed, but this is just one of the procedural steps that you have to go through to get the end result,” he said.

He indicated that the Appellate Court decision had provided guidance to the attorneys representing McHenry County.

“The decision doesn’t address the substantive nature of the challenge.  It’s all procedural.”

Koehler said that he had a meeting scheduled with the Appellate Prosecutors Office next Friday about the case.

“This is far from over.”
