Jailed Algonquin man hit with lawsuit
WOODSTOCK – A man whose former attorney tried to have him killed has filed a civil lawsuit against the attorney, who recently was sentenced to 8½ years in federal prison.
Jason W. Smiekel pleaded guilty to solicitation of murder using interstate commerce for what prosecutors said were at least three attempts to have Brian Hegg killed. The final attempt involved an undercover federal agent, and Smiekel was arrested in August 2011.
Hegg wad Smiekel’s client in a paternity case, and Smiekel eventually had a relationship with – and became engaged to – Hegg’s ex-girlfriend.
