Shelby Co., IL. (ECWd) –

Shelby County Auxiliary Sheriff’s Deputy Rodney Stanfill was charged in Fayette County last month with allegations of Class A Misdemeanor of operating a used car dealership without a license.

This comes after he was charged earlier this year with a Class 4 Felony of failure to disclose rebuilt engine/title when he sold a vehicle (article here).

His pre-trial in the felony case is January 5, 2021 @ 9:00 a.m. – which will also be his initial appearance in this new misdemeanor  charge.

Immediately after his felony indictment, the Shelby County Sheriff placed him on administrative leave pending outcome of the Fayette County case.

The public is reminded that: “All Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”

    There are too many laws in the land of the free. Sure wish I could read about the real criminals at the top getting charged with crimes. Seriously, how can ANY law be enforced at this point? The constitution is defecated on shortly after these politicians take office. Harsh words? What about the balanced budget amendment? There hasn’t been a balanced budget for 18 years. Oh, but the Supreme Court judges said that blah, blah, blah. I’m not the smartest guy in the room but I know what balanced budget means and what the intent of the amendment is. The oath: “I do solemnly swear (affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Illinois, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of …. to the best of my ability.” So, if the governor signs a budget that is not balanced, is that a crime against the constitution? A crime against the constitution is Treason. I submit that Illinois’ financial condition would be in better shape had we the people enforced the constitution. What is my point? SOME public servants all the way down to dog catcher will have little fear of the law until those at the top are held accountable.

      Agree. How many elected officials in Illinois from townships to municipalities to counties to Springfield take this oath and turn around and do the exact opposite?!?! There is no fear because everyone is doing it and no one prosecutes. States Attorneys are just as guilty. People are not running for office to serve the people and be fiscally responsible but rather to self serve and make sure friends and family are taken care of on the taxpayer’s back. Wake up folks!
