I always thought the James Sheldon was gay!
People who look gay usually are.

And, being that James Sheldon was Timothy T.(the Pedophile) Scholtes immediate supervisor makes it more believable.

The funniest thing I've ever seen at work was a few years ago when a party in some case brought in print outs of Marsaglia's facebook page that contained all kinds of homophobic slurs. The judge turned red and apologized in front of the whole courtroom and then, unbelievably, did some fast steppin' and blamed it on his teenaged son. Yeah, right! Not the smartest thing to do on the part of the fella who called the judge out on this, but it seemed like he was deliberately trying to get Rob's goat so that he'd recuse himself. Don't think it worked, either. Too funny!

Maybe you should keep your comments in your fire barn and off the public gossip pages !!!!!!!!!! Better yet go to your chief and be a man and tell him how you feel instead of hiding behind an anonymous name on a posting !!!! Dont think that will happen

He (Marsaglia) is also handling the Brandson Sheldon case. Brandon Sheldon is the son of the now current Fire chief of Coal City. Now that daddy is the chief, I wonder if the arsonist will get off scott free!(???)
The kid has received fire training, daddy has been a firefighter for 30 some odd years, brother is a parademic in the same station. Kid is bored, set home on fire on May 19, 2011.
Read the story...
A firefighter-in-training has been charged with arson, accused of pouring gasoline on a neighbor's property and igniting it with a lighter.
Police report 18-year-old Brandon G. Sheldon, of Coal City, allegedly walked across his backyard with a plastic drink bottle with about one inch of gasoline, a lighter and newspaper advertisement and set the fire. He then allegedly went back to his residence and watched the fire from a bedroom window.
Thinking about what he did, police say Sheldon stated he went back to the vacant residence and attempted to put the fire out by stomping on it. At some point he called 911 to report the fire.
Coal City Police were dispatched to 585 E. Campbell Drive, in the Richards Crossing Subdivision, at 1:45 a.m. Friday, May 20. Coal City Fire personnel told police the fire appeared to be intentionally set and pointed police to evidence found. A Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) 15 fire investigator and K-9 unit were called in to inspect the scene.
It was during the fire investigation that police received word that the 18-year-old confessed to setting the fire and was willing to make a statement. The suspect was transported to the Coal City Police Department to provide a video taped statement. In his meeting with an investigator he provided details of his actions, noting that he drove to the fire station and traveled back to the scene onboard a fire engine. He stated that he wanted to make sure the fire was put out.
The responding officer, David Kasher, reported he witnessed Sheldon talking to two firefighters about what he observed from his bedroom window and how he called 911. According to a report from fire investigators, Sheldon changed his story and confessed to setting the fire that started on the east side of the two-story home near the air conditioning unit. Fire investigators estimated the damage at $2,000 to $3,000.
Police recovered a plastic drink bottle, lighter, a pair of shoes and cellular phone as evidence.
Sheldon, who has a clean record, was booked and processed into the Grundy County Jail pending an appearance before a judge. He was later released on bond. Arson is a class 2 felony and punishable by three to seven-years imprisonment, a fine not to exceed $25,000 or an amount specified in the offense, whichever is greater, or a maximum 4-years probation or conditional discharge.
A recent high school graduate, Sheldon had taken fire science courses in high school and was completing his fire academy training.

UPDATE: The Grant's (Brian and Sue) have come to a written COURT ORDERED agreement after 10 years(which was also hand written and signed by all parties involved, but when it was typed pieces of the orders were omitted...coincidence or corruption?), but not without the husband in this case dishing out hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting for his rights as a father, paying maintenance, and both attorney's fees (and I believe his lawyer said he would take this case pro bono). The husband was awarded sole custody, while the wife has not paid or been ordered to pay a single dime of child support for their 3 children.(THERE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE!)The judge, Marsaglia, did not feel it was in the best interest of the children...WHAT?...ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Now the wife does not like the order that was signed, so Bretz has put in an emergency motion for false allegations and ridiculous contempt charges. This attorney and ex-wife are just now simply harassing this man.
She needs to be informed of her attorney's, Bretz, negligence from her appeal, when she lost custody of her kids. She could and should go after him for millions. I think someone, maybe me, should write her a letter stating the facts of his misrepresentations, poor and illegal lawyer practices.
I'll keep everyone posted...

I always wanted to believe this county in Illinois had not been corrupted. However, I have seen back-door (judges chambers meetings) where I cannot find my own attorney. I have found local attorneys biased because there income is sole based from Grundy County, IL. This includes guardian ad litem in county who supplements her own opinion as factual information and writes GAL reports based on hear say information and leaves the rest missing from the reports so that the judges can claim he or she was dealing with the information provide by council. So by not allowing evidence to the judge they have allowed the judge to make a bad decision that he or she can claim is not there fault.
This kind of stuff as to date is going on in Grundy County, Illinois.

When is the election for the Judges of Grundy County...we the residents of Burt estates are fed up with being ruled against...Are the Judges that arrogant that they think it won't catch up with them? It seems that we are called the projects of Diamond..but it is truly because the owners are slum landlords, and take the homes away from the residents with the Judge's help, after they put money into the homes...and try to make them presentable...I have just realized this when I filed a civil suit against an employee of Burt Estates.. evidently I was finally awarded a judgment by default, only to have the Attorney finally show up on that date I was to present my case to the Judge, when the Attorney said to the Judge, "Don't you remember I called you and told you I was having Oral Surgery that day" Judge rubbed his forehead and stated " I did forget". Then the attorney stated I been carrying around in my briefcase a Motion to Vacate and forgot to give to the Plaintiff. and then the Judge stated Motion to Vacate the judgment is granted. And I was told to hire an attorney, but that is impossible because none what to take the civil case or they want $1 000.00 up front..I wonder why we even have to go thru the motion when it seems to be set in stone already...and the moron that damaged my home gets away with it...In January I broke my ankle, and I called on Monday for court was on Wednesday and asked if I could get a continuance, but was advised by the Clerk that I have to show up in order to do so...but the Attorney's don't? What a crock...I truly hope the voters get these people out...they think we're stupid....Vote them out...I'll be going door to door in my neighborhood to let the voters and taxpayers know about this...believe me..thanks for letting me vent

Karen has to go. Her and her staff are the worst. They are so rude to people. They just do not understand that we not only pay their salaries, but we also do not know how the system works.
When we ask a question it is because we do not understand the process. Karen and my large extended family are going to vote NO for Karen. Yes, she is part of the problem in Grundy Co.

They are extremely rude. There are several things a regular citizen should be able to do with very little instruction. File a motion, ask questions. If you push and have a hardship with money they have the power to waive the filing fees. They are never helpful and almost always, people end up hiring a lawyer for things they should not have to. To me, this is corruption. Guide the people who vote for you. Don't make it impossible ...to me this is just putting money in the attorney's pockets.

If you have proof of corruption you should gather your facts and allegations, then report it to the FBI. Have a look at the following web page:
