About this Article

Prosecutors sought to restore the $750,000 cash bond for the one ex-Schaumburg police officer not released from jail because his wife doesn't want him back. They argue Terrance O'Brien's wife filed for divorce six days after his arrest on drug charges. "The court relied upon defendant's representations that (O'Brien) has a house in Palatine and a supportive wife with him," a court motion said. "He has neither."
