The arrest of two deputies three weeks before the election just drives home the ineptitude of the current administration. We need a change. Motley is a law enforcement professional.

Edgar County needs someone in the Sheriff's office that actually has knowledge of how the system is SUPPOSED to work. One who will actually follow statute & enforce the law no matter "who you are".

Tim Crippes has not abused the law. He acted in good faith by calling in the state police when his employees were disrespecting their profession. I call that integrity. Motley can claim experience, but running a prison and serving the citizens of Edgar County are two different things. Crippes is NOT under investigation personally and has provided quality law enforcement for the citizens of Edgar county. Put the hater-aid away.

Yup, Edgar County Sheriff's department talked to them and told them they took care of it, they had them resign. They were going to sweep it under the rug! Not the same as calling them in for a full investigation as Crippes as tried to lead everyone to believe.

How do you know they were going to sweep it under the rug? Crippes maintained confidentiality during the invetigation and people on this forum claim that indicates a cover up. Seriously? The rumor that Crippes was arrested Saturday proves how low some people will go to drag someone through the mud.

Read the article closing and his statement...they talked to them and it was going to take a few days and in the meantime the two resigned. Then later in the article it stated the State's attorneys office was in contact with the ISP. Put two and two together and realize that Crippes was going to leave it as them resigning! Plus I know it on a very good source that he was not pushing for it as was allowing just the resignations to be enough!

So I read it. Here you go...from the Beacon...
“When the allegations were made, we contacted the state police, as is our policy, because it was an internal affairs matter,” said Tim Crippes, Edgar County Sheriff.“The state police couldn’t get to it for a few days, and we started our own internal investigation. In the meantime, they (Rhoads and Ball) resigned.”

"Illinois State Police Zone 5 Special Agents started their investigation on June 21 per an additional request from the Edgar County State’s Attorney’s Office. Following the investigation, warrants were issued by the Edgar County Circuit Court, and the arrests were made by Zone 5 agents, officers from Illinois State Police District 10 and the Illinois State Police Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (SWAT)."

This indicates Crippes and the State's Attorney's office followed proper procedure. No need to put two and two together when its in black and white. Try again!

Why do you think the State's Attorney's office had to make an additional reguest? It is because the Sheriff's department told them they had taken care of it (making them resign!) I am not here to argue, just get the facts straight! The sheriff was misleading in the article, he didn't actually lie, just mislead.

Because the State's Attorney is responsible for filing charges. Its called cooperation between public offices. I'm not here to argue either, but I'm rather disgusted by posters who make up the facts as they go along.

Ok... so Crippes asks the state to take a look. The state doesn't have time (for some reason), so Crippes does an internal investigation for the time being, until the state has time. During the internal investigation, the boys resign to save face. Time passes... the state doesn't ever show up, so then the states attorney, who was in the middle of a judge election battle, calls the state up to re-request an investigation? Why did he need to call again? Didn't Crippes already call?
