I was told that a special prosecutor has been named out of Putnam County and will be prosecuting this case. Can anyone verify this?
just curious

I didn't hear about it via the media-I just heard it elsewhere through "certain" sources. Sure is a slow process. I assume the media will pick this up when there is something to report and an arrest is made.

Already settled not guilty the case and trial will just be for show.

That is not how it works. The Special Prosecutor has to draw all charges related to the case from start to finish. Since Modesitt removed himself-there has been no charges filed because there has been no prosecutor to draw charges-hence the reason for a special prosecutor. Criminal charges begin with the prosecutor and a PC affidavit, then on to a judge for the arrest warrant, then arrest etc etc.

That's an opinion, not proof.

Technically it doesn't have to go to the Prosecutor first. The police can go straight to a judge with PC to get an arrest warrant and then the Prosecutor has 72 hours to file formal charges against the person. Going through the Prosecutor first is a courtesy (and usually helps to streamline the eventual case).

You are correct. There are multiple ways this can play out depending on circumstances of the case involved. I was just stating the "status quo" that is generally used on a case such as this. When time is an element, then the process can be "fast tracked" or manipulated-it just depends on the circumstances of the individual case involved. Thank you for your input, it seems you are one of the few that actually has a educated view on this subject!

Has he been gone from work? I saw him the other day in town. Tribune-Star will have a story on this for Wednesday.

I doubt the Tribune Star will report on something just yet, as I am not sure that information on the special prosecutors identity has been made public yet. If this prosecutor is from Putnam county-its really not hard to figure out that it is the Putnam Co prosecutor currently in office.

Looks like there maybe some life to this topic. I bet Terry is sweating this one out. Would love to see his face when he gets arrested.

With the hub-bub that's following this story, rest assured they must have a lot on him and have nowhere to go but proceed with the indictment.

Upper cut to Terry!
