PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
The Edgar County State's Attorney filed an updated complaint with the Circuit Court on October 13, 2016.
Original article (here). In the updated complaint, the name of the alleged victim in Count II was changed from Sherry Ricketts to Harold Davies. No further mention of Ricketts in the complaint.
Additionally, the Edgar County Sherriff's Office has confirmed that Corrections Officer Stacey Hawkins was placed on administrative leave.
They also confirmed she has not been arrested yet and there are no mugshots or intake forms.
Which makes me wonder if other people who allegedly commit Domestic Battery and Aggravated Assault are afforded this same non-confrontational treatment, of if they would have been arrested, had mugshots taken, and had to post bail.
It would also be nice to know if all of her guns were seized/prohibited from owning guns like the rest of the "ordinary" people would have had done to them...have they seized her FOID/Concealed Carry Card (if she had one) and notified the Illinois State Police of the pending charges?
The amended filing also has the correct County Clerk information, unlike the previous filing.
Reminder: "All defendants are innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law."
