Mental illness cited in murder-for-hire plot
ROCKFORD – Ahead of his sentencing Wednesday in federal court, the defense team for an Algonquin lawyer has filed documents saying he suffered from a mental disorder when he tried to have his fianceé’s ex killed.
Jason W. Smiekel faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in April to solicitation
of murder using interstate commerce.
The intended target not only was Smiekel’s fianceé’s former lover, but also Smiekel’s client.
