CLINTON COUNTY MAN SENTENCED TO MAXIMUM TERM

  

The United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois announced Monday that 40 year-old Edward Bareiter Jr. of Clinton County, was sentenced to the maximum statutory term of 120 months in prison, ordered to pay a $15,000 fine and placed on supervised release for a period of three years.  Bareiter's court-ordered sentence must be served consecutively with his 20-year sentence in prison.  Bareiter pled guilty in September to one count of Use of a Facility in Interstate Commerce to Facilitate Murder for Hire and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Murder for Hire.  The offenses occurred while Bareiter was in jail in Clinton County awaiting trial on state charges. Bareiter and his co-conspirator attempted to arrange the murders of witnesses against Bareiter so that they could not testify against him.  Barieter's co-defendant pled guilty last year and is currently serving a sentence of 58 months imprisonment.

FEEDING WILD DEER MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO THEIR HEALTH

 

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources reminds you not to feed wild deer.  A ban on feeding wild deer was enacted in 2002 as part of the state's continuing effort to limit the spread of chronic wasting disease in the Illinois wild deer herd.  CWD is a fatal neurological disease found in deer and elk that affects the brains of infected animals, causing them to become emaciated, display abnormal behavior, lose coordination, and eventually die.  The ban includes food, salt, mineral blocks and other food products, but excludes bird and squirrel feeders close to homes and incidental feeding of wildlife within active livestock operations.  The ban also does not prevent individuals from planting food plots.

ILLINOIS IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS

A special Illinois House committee, looking into the possible impeachment of Governor Rod Blagojevich, met for less than an hour yesterday morning.  Each member of the committee made an opening statement, but no testimony was heard.  Representative Barbara Flynn-Currie says attorney Ed Genson will represent the Governor at the hearings starting today. Currie, who is chairing the committee, says the impeachment proceedings will not have any impact on the criminal case.  She says the committee is staying in contact with U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to determine what evidence he might be able to provide, without jeopardizing his case.  The committee is scheduled to meet every day except Christmas and New Year's.  Today's meeting begins at 11:00 AM.
