Drug trafficker linked to Judge faces sentencing

Thursday, 23 January 2014 07:03 Published in Local News
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois man is scheduled to be sentenced for his role in a drug-trafficking ring prosecutors say also involved a judge who later resigned after being accused of heroin possession.
Sean McGilvery pleaded guilty in October to felony heroin conspiracy and possession charges in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis. That's where he's set to be sentenced Thursday.
Federal prosecutors say former St. Clair County judge Michael Cook was one of McGilvery's regular customers while he was on the bench.
Cook was arrested last year as part of an investigation that also focused on the cocaine-related death of a prosecutor-turned-judge at the Cook family's hunting cabin.
Cook has pleaded guilty to federal heroin and weapons possession counts. He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 26.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is proposing $198 million in bonds for a new maximum and intermediate security facility at the Fulton State Hospital.
The hospital has Missouri's only maximum security psychiatric facility, and patients include those committed by the courts for treatment. It also is the statewide treatment facility for people who have been found guilty or unable to stand trial because of mental disease.
Nixon is proposing a $14 million supplement to the current year's budget for the hospital and another $14 million in his recommendations for the 2015 budget that takes effect July 1.
The governor's budget director says bonds would be issued if lawmakers approve the supplemental budget request. One option would be issuing the bonds through the Missouri Development Finance Board.
