Former St. Clair County judge Michael Cook, whose colleague died of a cocaine overdose in March, pleaded guilty today in court. The Post-Dispatch reports that Cook was sentenced to 18 months in prison for misdemeanor heroin possession and a felony charge of being a drug user in possession of a firearm. On Wednesday, 46-year-old James Fogarty, a former county probation officer, admitted selling drugs to Cook and Judge Joseph Christ and using drugs with both men. Two men convicted separately of murder in Cook's court have won retrials after raising concerns about the judge's drug connections, and some other criminal defendants have been allowed to withdraw guilty pleas.

Quinn picks Paul Vallas as 2014 running mate

Friday, 08 November 2013 11:33 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn has selected former Chicago schools CEO and 2002 gubernatorial candidate Paul Vallas as his running mate in 2014.

 

   The Chicago Democrat announced Vallas as his pick in an email Friday.

 

   Quinn says he's known Vallas for 30 years and "he's never been shy about fighting for education, reform and opportunities for working people."

   Vallas is currently the school superintendent in Bridgeport, Conn., where he's been fighting to keep his job in a court battle waged by his critics.

   Vallas ran Chicago Public Schools from 1995 until 2001.

   He lost the Democratic nomination for governor in 2002 to Rod Blagojevich (bluh-GOY'-uh-vitch). Vallas then was superintendent of schools in Philadelphia and New Orleans.

 

   Quinn's current lieutenant governor, Sheila Simon, is running for comptroller next year.
