if the kid admitted it it doesn't make it alright to say sorry and be done with it. he knew what he was doing therefore should suffer the consequences of the full sentence. odds are it won't happen because the entire county is corrupt. it always has been. the kids are not going to quit because all they are getting is a slap on the wrist and a fine. so they keep doing it and the courts will keep taking free money all day long. some of you are finally
starting to see what the county is like.
It's all about who you know in Grundy County.

It is not just Grundy County. It is how it works in the world. As has been - always will be.

Still curious. The town should know how the law and the fire department treats these kinds of things.

Seems everyone is being very tight lipped about this one.

Brandon Sheld, son of James Sheldon, a Coal City Firefighter Paramedic and Lemont, IL Fire Dept Battalion Chief, sets fire to home,
Confesses,
Taken into custody,
Bonded out & Released for Mental Evaluation,
Indicted By Grand Jury

And, no one know the outcome ????

Something is not right here!

And, have any of you seen the home that was set on fire? It's in bad shape. The fire was set to the condensor and the wall directly behind it. The Fire Dept had to pull off the siding to extinguish the fire. The plywood walls were left exposed. Now, with all the winds and storms we've had, the remainging siding is gradually coming off and blowing all over. Funny thing is that Brandon Sheldons family lives directly behind the home he set fire to. The least they could do is clean up all the siding that is all over the place.

This is Trailer Trash at it's finest!!

NO EXCUSE FOR BEING STUPID!!
How long has the kid's dad and brother worked for the CC FIRE DEPT.? Get this, he still has NOT even been sentenced. There's a PRE-trial set for Sept. 22. Real curious as to when the kid's dad and brother started working or volunteering for the dept. Does any know?
