Fox Lake, IL (KTRS) Prosecutors in northern Illinois are contacting attorneys whose clients pleaded guilty or were convicted in cases involving a police officer who authorities say committed suicide after years of embezzling from a police-sponsored youth program.
The Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim says there are over a dozen prosecutions since 2008 involving the late Fox Lake Police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz. The notification gives attorneys the opportunity to file motions or pursue other action after Gliniewicz’s suicide and thefts were revealed.
Meanwhile, officials with BMO Harris Bank have told the (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald that they’ve frozen the main memorial bank account created after Gliniewicz’s death when it was suspected he was a homicide victim. Bank officials haven’t disclosed how much money is in the account.
