Shelby Co. (ECWd) –

The village of Tower Hill’s former Treasurer, Nancy Finley, has been charged with a Class X Felony for alleged theft of over $100,000.00.

Will this be another micro-example of Dixon Illinois where over $50,000,000 million was stolen, all while everyone claimed clean audits?

The village has a reported Revenue of $300,180.00.  Expenditures exceed revenues by $63,417 in 2016 with a debt load of $90,000.00.  $90K?  Is this one of those red flag numbers?  What are the odds that their actual debt is a perfectly round number?  This particular debt is for a Revenue Bond according to the filings with the Illinois Comptroller. 

Bail was set at $50,000 on November 9th, 2017.  No plea has been entered as of the time of this report.

    They always get by with it…for a while.

    It just keeps getting worse and worse. No wonder people keep fighting transparency. Pealing the layers back just shows more and more corruption.

    There is a mental defect in those who think they will not get caught. Criminal defense attorney, here’s your criminal defense-“Not guilty due to mental defect”. Instead of jail, a locked psych ward for 30 years.

    People try to bring this kind of stuff to light all the time but nothing gets done. Tried to get a fire chief in trouble for double dipping on taxpayers but nobody would listen. Even the county board didn’t care to even look into it.

    I live in the same town as this woman. It’s now August of 2019 and nothing has been done.
