What an offensive waste of tax dollars - the State's Attorney who approved felony charges should be ashamed. How much do you think it costs to hold a trial? Think about it - the salaries for the clerks, sheriffs, judge, state's attorneys and not to mention the cost of incarceration for six years minimum if she had been convicted?
