Update on McHenry Prosecutor Case

On June 1, 2009, we published a post about a possible scandal brewing in McHenry County. A former secretary for McHenry County State's Attorney Louis Bianchi was claiming that Bianchi had her do illegal campaign related work for him while she was on county time. The former secretary, Amy Dalby, had been sentenced to Court Supervision for illegally removing thousands of computer files from Bianchi's office. Dalby claimed she removed the files to preserve the evidence of Bianchi's illlegal conduct. Dalby has also filed a petition to have a special prosecutor appointed to investigate Bianchi. This morning, Bianchi filed a motion to have an outside attorney appointed to represent the county in Dalby's Petition. Bianchi wants an outside attorney appointed for the county to have the county determine whether to oppose Dalby's petition.

It seems like Bianchi would be better served by not getting involved in the matter and not file any motions or petitions relative to the case. This matter has the real potential of becoming complicated and drawn out. We'll keep an eye out on this for our readers.
