Derek Schwantner

On August 9, 2021, Schwanter was pulled over by Officer Lance Jones of the Crystal Lake Police Department and found to have no driver’s license or insurance.

A search of Schwanter’s vehicle revealed that he had 55 bags of heroin in the center console.

Schwantner also had four cell phones and $457 in United States Currency.

Detective Michael Maloney of the Crystal Lake Police Department testified as an expert in street level narcotics and explained to the jury that the amount of heroin that Schwantner had was considerably more than a drug user would have for their own personal use.

Maloney further explained that based on the amount of heroin, its packaging, and the other evidence, it was clear that Schwantner was engaged in dealing heroin.

Schwanter will be sentenced by the Honorable James Cowlin on October 6, 2022.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorneys Ken Hudson and Matthew Brodersen.

  1. Yet Pfizer, Moderna and J&J get a free pass for injecting poison into people’s bodies under the guise of safety and as a condition of maintaining their employment. I’m sure Ken and Matt are proud of their latest scalp.

    This is a good job, but the irony is not lost on most how much big pharma played a role in creating a next generation of opioid addicts. When is Biden going to be charged for all the Fentanyl being smuggled over our border? That was rhetorical since the smartest guy he knows smokes crack and has sex with underage women and sells out this country and the FBI who has the laptop is more interested in raiding MAL.

    Dems and RINO’s are all in the same clown car. Where’s Kathi Salvi again?

  2. Strike the question on Kathi Salvi. She’s busy throwing platitudes on camera with the hayseed at the state fair. Keep falling for it IL conservatives.

  3. Then there’s the platitudes of the JTard Catechism.

    Could use more Beatitudes instead.

  4. Monk they all hide behind their “christianity” and yet don’t even understand it or their hypocrisy.


    How about Bailey isn’t he doing the same thing right now.

    What has he done?

    He is already a legislator.

  5. Pokorny, you seem to hide behind your gender fluidity.

    Do you realize how asinine your posts are?

    What happened to Derek Schwantner’s head?

  6. JT, what about the Chinese fentanyl formulators and the Mex cartels bring the poison in on our open borders?

  7. Prim, China and Mexico don’t have our constitution. We have a resident in the WH that swore to uphold ours. He’s failing bigly.

  8. JT, did Kathy Salvi purposely kill your dog or something?

    Why do you have such personal, pathologic, and repetitive vitriol towards her in particular.

    I know her, and I totally support her.

    She’s a delightful person and sharp on the issues.

    She’s been very conservative her entire life – particularly on the protection of the unborn.

    I don’t know her that well and the only thing I don’t like is that she’s a trial lawyer – but I’ve never supported anyone who is 100% perfect.

    Have you?

    Why are you so repetitive on your vicious and vapid attacks?

    Why are your attacks so personally vile?
