Lake County, Indiana is a very corrupte County. Worst I have ever seen. Lots of things go on behind closed doors! They do not follow the law. They make up the laws as they go along. One Judge in particular is very guilty of this and thank God, he retired. However there is one very crooked lawyer still practing in Crown Point.... shame shame on all of you!! What goes around, comes around.... KARMA

The only way to fix the politics in Lake County Indiana is to get rid of all of the politicians and start over. They all work together democrats and republicans its all a Facade. They all need voted out and new politicians put in. And it should continue until everyone has been replaced. Politicians from the bottom up and it needs to start with our police,prosecutor and judges. Most have been there to long and have no desire for justice anymore its all about money !

Shante's jury trial starts today-November 15. Last month a couple of counts were dismissed but still they are trying her on TRAFFICKING WITH AN INMATE which is a Class C felony (according to court records) which carries something like 2 to 8 years. Just curious--since she was once a deputy judge and has sentenced people for greater and lesser crimes, does she get leniency because of her position or will she be held to a higher standard because she should know better and thus be punished more severely?
i know it s not but malfeasance should be the death penalty, and government people should not be in the judgement position of crimes against humanity

Anyone know who the crooked deputy prosecutor might be?

SB/Times: Voice mail messages from the prosecutor's office to Young and court documents initially indicated the conflict cited by Schiralli might be due to the defense attorney being related to a deputy prosecutor.

However, Lake County Prosecutor Bernard Carter last week denied any involvement by his office in the transfer.

Had there been a relationship conflict between a deputy prosecutor and the defense attorney, Carter's office would have assigned a different deputy to the case and kept the case in Crown Point, Carter said.

"That was not the issue," he said. "It was more the judge disqualified himself."

Whatever Schiralli's reasoning, Young can't shake off his frustration with the courts.

"I did not expect this," he said. "No I didn't."

In attending court hearings, he says all he sees are "stacks and stacks of papers. My case is just another drop in the ocean."

Young said he sees his case as cut-and-dried and questions the numerous continuances.

"I just think judges should be a little more involved in handing out continuances," he said. "The more this drags on, I can't just let it go."

Young said this experience has left him questioning the use of his tax dollars.

"It's the lack of justice," he said. "That's all we're looking for, a little bit of justice."
