Attorney General says No charges against Health Department
* The following information updates an earlier-posted WGFA website story regarding the Ford-Iroquois Public 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."
