When McHenry County Blog published “Better Government Association Looks at Sheriff’s Department,” the article was based on an incomplete answer obtained from the Sheriff’s Department as a result of a Freedom of Information request.
As mentioned in the article, “The Sheriff’s Department has not yet provided the ‘attached list’ of inmate names…”
I made a mistake in pluralizing the word “name.”
It turns out the BGA was only interested in one inmate–Gary Gauger.
Gauger, you may remember, was falsely arrested for and convicted of murdering his parents when, in fact, a motor cycle gang did so.
The information desired, as revealed in the attachment, was
Date of Birth
Date of Arrest
Date of Conviction
