Judge: Deputy must pay fees for lying in lawsuit
WOODSTOCK – A deputy and his wife lied under oath as part of a federal lawsuit against the McHenry County Sheriff, and as a sanction against them, they will have to pay a substantial amount of the sheriff's legal bills, a judge ruled.
U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Kapala stopped short of tossing Zane Seipler's case in its entirely, however.
Seipler is suing Sheriff Keith Nygren, alleging that his civil rights were violated when he was fired out of retaliation for blowing the whistle on racial profiling. Nygren has said Seipler was fired because he wrote traffic tickets or warnings to passengers rather than drivers who did not have valid licenses.
