It will be over a month until Winnebago Chief Judge Joesph McGraw decides on two motions argued today concerning McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi, et al’s contempt of court case against those who took part in the failed Special Prosecutor’s criminal prosecutions
Special Prosecutor Thomas McQueen, plus Patrick Hannretty, Robert Scigalski and the latter two’s company, Quest Consultants International, are the targets of the action.
Former Bianchi defense attorney Terry Ekl is currently the prosecuting attorney in the case.
Oral arguments were heard today regarding whether Ekl should continue in that role, as well as whether the case should be dismissed immediately.
McGraw set a July date to deliver his ruling.
