Lexius is “Hook” to Indict Jason Smiekel in Murder-for-Hire Case

Haven’t seen this before.

The indictment does not tell thet color Jason Smiekel's Lexus.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office references the use of a Lexus in its indictment of Algonquin attorney Jason Smiekel.

It is described as “a facility of interstate commerce.”

Take a look at Count 2 below:


The SEPTEMBER 2010 GRAND JURY further charges:

On or about August 1, 2011, in Lake County, in the Northern District of Illinois, and elsewhere,


defendant herein, with the intent that a murder be committed in violation of the laws of the State of Illinois as consideration for the receipt of and as consideration for a promise or agreement to pay anything of pecuniary value, did use a facility of interstate commerce, namely a Lexus automobile;

In violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1958.

A commenter below says that Jason Smeikel owned a 1993 white Lexus.

His use of a cell phone is also four of the seven counts; his use of the Lexus in the other three.  All are in McHenry and Lake Counties.
