Murder plot gets Algonquin attorney 8.5 years in prison
ROCKFORD – An Algonquin attorney was sentenced Tuesday to 8˝ years in federal prison for his plot to have his fianceé’s ex killed.
Jason W. Smiekel, 30, previously pleaded guilty to solicitation of murder using interstate commerce. The intended target was Brian Hegg, who also was Smiekel’s client at one point.
Prosecutors said Smiekel made several attempts to have Hegg killed, including soliciting a high school friend. Another attempt was with a former client who owed Smiekel’s firm money.
