When my opponent says he put someone in jail for x
years, he wants you to believe that the credit is all his. However,
there were always police officers and investigators putting these
cases together. I have been a trooper on the road working as a
patrol officer on the toll highway up by Chicago. I have been a
lieutenant supervising an investigations unit. In both of these jobs
people went to jail when my work was combined with work by other
elements of the criminal justice system.
I have worked as an attorney for the Illinois State Police for many
years. I have handled firearms owner's identification cards cases,
discrimination cases, discipline matters, drafted legislation and
policies. I am going highlight a couple matters.

A little over 7 years ago, the Illinois State Police took over the
regulation of forensic alcohol testing for DUI purposes. When the
state police did this, I drafted the administrative rules. Those
rules have been in place for years now and more importantly they
have worked. People have been sent to jail all over the state for
DUI violations and the rules which I drafted have withstood the test
I was assigned to supervise a huge racial profiling lawsuit by the
ACLU against the Illinois State Police. This case went on for 8
years, the department spent millions of dollars, and most
importantly we won. We were the 1st police department to
successfully fight the ACLU and win this type of suit.
