County will not pursue deputy to pay its legal bill
WOODSTOCK – McHenry County is dropping its motion for Deputy Zane Seipler and his attorney to pick up the tab for defending against Seipler’s request for a special prosecutor to investigate the sheriff.
The move comes after a Tuesday morning court hearing in which Judge Thomas A. Meyer told Bill Caldwell, who is representing the county, that he wasn’t likely to grant the motion for sanctions. The McHenry County Board discussed the matter in closed session at its regular meeting that evening.
Caldwell said Wednesday that the issue for Meyer is not the merits of the motion, but an earlier letter from State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi to Seipler attorney Blake Horwitz declining to investigate Sheriff Keith Nygren.
