Entire Edgar County State’s Attorney’s Office On Quarantine: All Criminal Cases Postponed

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On August 24, 2020

Paris, IL. (ECWd) –

The Edgar County State’s Attorney’s Office is on quarantine due to a positive test of COVID-19.

Edgar County Board Chairman Jeff Voigt stated that “an office in the courthouse is on quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test, and SERVPRO has been contacted and will be at the courthouse this morning to clean and sanitize the Courtrooms, restrooms, hallways, and the elevator.”

Voigt would not state which office or which person, however, I was informed this morning that the case involving former Paris Councilman Kemper will not be heard this afternoon due to this new information, and all criminal cases have been postponed.

We urge any criminal defendants to contact the court about their case, and not rely on the information within this article, as this is unofficial information – although we believe it to be true and obtained it from multiple sources within the courthouse.

We will update this article should the Court issue a statement or press release.

    Oh my God! One person caught an illness that has a fatality rate less than that of the flu after taking a test that is only 60% accurate! Run for the hills!

    On an equally sarcastic note, apparently if you ever had the aspirations to become a criminal, now is the time to do so because you will either be released from prison or just not prosecuted all due to COVID-19.

    I hope no one in the County Clerk’s office tests positive on November the 2nd.

      Actually, given the amount of election fraud that is obviously going on, I am kind of torn on this one….

    There is absolutely no end to the bullshit they are going to keep pulling. This was a hoax and a fake from day one to control and subvert and it’s working like a charm; so they are going to keep putting the screws to the world. Denying public pillories was a huge mistake. The people of the world have let them go too far.

    I’m pissed at the ChiComs for sending that crap over here, and I’m equally pissed that it has been politicized on both sides. I initially blew it off but did take precautions. I also wear my mask – better safe than sorry – and I also do it for the peace of mind of those who have underlying health issues. With that said, I sat up and took notice when a 37yr old acuaintance of mine, a runner and in good physical condition, told me he contracted the virus earlier this year. He was positive for 45 days! He said that experience was only the second time in his life he feared death. The first was in a gun battle during his combat deployment in the Middle-East. He now has continuous neuropathy pain in hands and feet, along with a host of other physical ailments arising from contracting the Wuhan Red Death. He has frequent doctor’s appointments. So, while I agree that there is a lot of BS that goes into discussions of this crap, it IS real and it DOES have consequences in many people. I suspect most people who suffer side effects don’t want to discuss those they are suffering. Those side effects / consequences just simply cannot yet be predicted with any certainty.

    Blame? If you actually looked into the lies they have promulgated for the last two hundred years you would know everything you said was a complete lie. This has NOTHING to do with ANY illness. This is about control and the new world order. Satan is running loose and YOU are HELPING him by believing in those lies! What is real is what they are doing to humanity.
