About this Article
An attorney for McHenry County State's Attorney Louis Bianchi, who was acquitted in two misconduct trials in 2011, has asked a judge to declare a special prosecutor and two investigators to be held in contempt of court. Attorney Terry Ekl argues that a trove of emails obtained in a federal lawsuit filed by Bianchi that special prosecutor Thomas McQueen ignored exculpatory evidence.
