Like always another Illinois Politician violates civil rights.
Illinois politics violate your right to carry a gun, violate your rights under the 14th Amendment when it comes to speed and redlight tickets, and now the idiot pictured to the left violated the 6th Amendment. How you ask well I'll tell you. The 6th Amendment entitles you to a fair a speedy trial which means you can not sit in jail for more than 160 days and on that 160th day the state must do one of two things prosecute you or let you go with double jepordy attached. If your out on bond then they have 120 days to do the same. so the next time you go to traffic court pay attention unless you need legal counsil your in and out the same day speedy trial 6th Amendment Judges in traffic court play with it every day thelawyers also hope you forget that part of the law so you can sit for 3 years before going to trial. Drew Peterson Guilty or not does not matter he was held for more than 160 days and the case should be over turned and double jepordy attached just because Will County failed to prosecute him with in the time frame defined by the Constitution.
