UPDATE: Illinois A-G will not pursue charges against Ford-Iroquois Public Health

Attorney General says No charges against Health Department

WATSEKA --  Iroquois County State's Attorney Jim Devine now confirms the Illinois Attorney General will not pursue any criminal charges concerning allegations made against the Ford-Iroquois Public Health Department.

Devine said he was asked by Assistant Attorney General Mary Bucaro to act a spokesperson for her, stating her office will not be pursuing any charges against any employee or the Ford-Iroquois Health Department.

Devine had asked the A-G to "take a look" at financial handling of matters within the local health department. That came after months of accusations at Freedom of Information requests from sources even outside the two-county area.

The A-G's ruling is that "nothing stands out to merit criminal charges and the matter will not be pursued."
