Hoopeston teen gets 2.5 years for Facebook bomb threat

  • by: WHPO Editor

  • city: Rantoul, According to the NEWS GAZETTE

A Hoopeston teen who admitted he posted on Facebook a threat to bomb Rantoul Township High School three months ago has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.

Dakota Degarmo, 18, pleaded guilty Thursday before Judge Roger Webber to a Class 3 felony count of disorderly conduct, admitting he made the threat, knowing it was false.
He admitted that on Oct. 5, he posted the threat on the popular social networking site that said merely: “A bomb will go off at rths on 10/6/16.” The post was made in the afternoon under an assumed name, Rantoul police said. Investigators were able to quickly trace the account to Degarmo.
Assistant State’s Attorney Larry Solava said Rantoul police searched the building that night using trained bomb-sniffing dogs but found nothing.
They arrested Degarmo the next day at a relative’s house in Rantoul.

Solava said as part of the negotiated plea agreement, Degarmo was ordered to make restitution of $3,000 to the Rantoul police department to cover its response expenses.
He was given credit on his sentence for 99 days already served in jail.
Solava said Degarmo had two prior juvenile adjudications for residential burglary from Vermilion County and was on parole for one at the time of his fall arrest. ALL ACCORDING TO THE NEWS GAZETTE.

Illinois State Police Highlight New 2017 Laws

  • by: WHPO Editor
  • on: December 29, 2016
  • city: Springfield

New Laws Could Impact Driving Habits and Decisions

The new year brings new laws, and the Illinois State Police (ISP) would like to highlight a few that become effective January 1, 2017.  
In an effort to protect first responders, Scott’s Law, the “Move Over” law, requires that motorists slow down or change lanes when approaching a stationary emergency vehicle with emergency lights activated.  Beginning in 2017 this law will also apply to any vehicle on the side of the road with hazard lights activated.  If you see flashing lights ahead, please move over or slow down.    
When entering a work or school zone, you need to eliminate distractions and make sure you are driving at the posted speed limit.  If you decide to speed through a work or school zone after the first of the year, you may end up in jail.  Speeding 26 miles per hour or more, but less than 35 miles per hour, is now a Class B misdemeanor, and 35 miles per hour or more in excess of the posted work or school zone speed limit is now a Class A misdemeanor.  
If you have been convicted of driving without insurance and you still choose to drive without insurance, your vehicle could be impounded the next time you’re stopped by the police.  The law now requires officers to tow your vehicle if you have been convicted of driving without insurance within the prior 12 months and you are receiving another citation for driving without insurance.  
“The new year usually brings new resolutions and goals,” stated ISP Director Leo P. Schmitz.  “In 2017 the ISP resolves to continue to work towards strengthening safe driving habits for motorists on Illinois roadways.   Our goal is to reduce serious traffic crashes through education and enforcement,” he continued.  
These are only a few of the new laws that have been enacted for 2017.  For a complete list of all the new Public Acts, please go to the Illinois General Assembly web site.

Hoopeston Area officials notified of end of tri-party deal (according to justthefacts.net)

  • city: HOOPESTON

After several years of being courted by two suitors, Rossville-Alvin school officials have notified Hoopeston Area that the relationship is over.

At Thursday’s board meeting, Supt. Hank Hornbeck read a letter from the Rossville-Alvin board, stating that Rossville-Alvin is proceeding with putting the question of a cooperative high school before voters in April and notifying Hoopeston Area that they would not be renewing the tri-party agreement.  The agreement, among Rossville-Alvin, Hoopeston Area and Bismarck-Henning districts, concerns Rossville-Alvin high school students who, since their own
school was deactivated in 2004, have been able to choose to attend one of the other two schools.  In April, Rossville-Alvin and Bismarck-Henning voters will decide whether their schools should form a cooperative high school. If approved, the co-op high school would be a separate district, having its own budget and school board made up of three members each from Rossville and Bismarck. A seventh member would serve as board president. The agreement would be for 20 years, unless Rossville-Alvin consolidates with another district.  Hoopeston Area’s board had no comment after the letter was read.  ACCORDING TO JUST THE FACTS online @ www.justthefacts.net

Man charged with arson in Vermilion County standoff

  • by: WHPO Editor
  • on: December 16, 2016
  • city: Danville according to the NEWS-GAZETTE

The young man involved in a domestic disturbance south of Danville on Tuesday has been arrested and charged with arson.

Caleb Emory, 23, was arrested at 2 p.m. Thursday as he was released from Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana and has been charged with one count of residential arson, a Class 1 felony, according to a news release from Vermilion County State’s Attorney Jacqueline Lacy.
He is being held at the Vermilion County Jail on a $500,000 bond in connection with the incident that happened at his home.
At 2:50 p.m. Tuesday, Vermilion County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call at 2530 Georgetown Road south of Tilton for a domestic disturbance, involving a man threatening to set a house on fire. The property is immediately west of the former McMillan School on Georgetown Road in the Hegeler area.
Upon arrival, deputies encountered a man “with what appeared to be a gun in one hand and a gas can in the other,” according to the release from Lacy’s office.
One deputy fired his weapon and struck the individual, who was taken to Carle with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the release.

Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, Illinois state police received a request from the Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department to investigate the officer-involved shooting.
As a result of their investigation, which is still underway, and the subsequent investigation of the Illinois State Fire Marshal’s Office, Emory was charged with residential arson, according to Lacy. It carries a possible sentence of four to 15 years in prison and is not eligible for probation, according to Lacy.
Three years ago, Emory was involved in a similar incident with sheriff’s deputies at his home on Georgetown Road.
That situation began shortly after 4 a.m. Nov. 21, 2013, when deputies were called to the house for a domestic disturbance that ended with a deputy shooting Emory. He was rushed to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and several days later, was arrested on a warrant as he was leaving the hospital and arraigned on multiple charges, including aggravated discharge of a firearm, assault and aggravated assault of a person 60 years old or older.
Last month, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in that case in exchange for 30 months of probation.

State police probing 2nd standoff in 3 years at Vermilion County home

  • by: WHPO Editor
  • on: December 14, 2016
  • city: Vermilion County according to the NEWS GAZETTE

For the second time in three years, the Illinois State Police are investigating an incident in which an armed man was shot by a Vermilion County sheriff’s deputy at a private residence at 2530 Georgetown Road.
The man, who was not identified, was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana on Tuesday afternoon following what was initially described as a standoff with police at the residence.

His condition wasn’t known Tuesday night.
Three years ago, in November 2013, it was Caleb Emory who was involved in an incident with deputies at the residence. On Tuesday, Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn declined to say whether this latest incident involved Emory, adding that it’s the Illinois State Police’s investigation now.
Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Hartshorn said deputies responded to the residence around 2:50 p.m. for a report of a domestic disturbance between a father and a son. The father reported that his son had threatened to set the house on fire, and had a gas can in one hand and a weapon in his other hand.
When deputies arrived, the father said the son was inside the house, trying to set the house on fire.
A few minutes later, Hartshorn said, the suspect appeared at the front of the house holding what appeared to be a handgun. The suspect asked the deputies on the scene if they were prepared to die and refused to drop the weapon.
Hartshorn said one deputy fired his weapon, striking the suspect, who retreated further into the residence. The suspect was later forced out of the house due to smoke from a fire that he ignited inside.
Brandon Wayne Bott and three of his employees at B&B Construction were nearby at Scoreboard Bar and Grill, at 2526 Georgetown Road, which Bott opened about 1 years ago. They said around 2:50 p.m., they watched a couple police cars drive by, followed by a number of other squad cars, turn at the former McMillan School and go down a private lane.
The lane leads to a handful of houses, including the ones police responded to, as well as the Sycamore Estates mobile home park.

Bott and his coworkers ran into the bar’s backyard and looked over a fence and saw the police cars converge in front of the large garage just west of the residence. Then they heard two gunshots followed by a pause and four more shots.
“There was another pause, then we heard more gunshots,” said Steve Hayden.
The men said a police officer they knew spotted them and told them to go back inside.
At 3:38 p.m., a Carle ambulance left the scene with its lights flashing.
The residence sits directly behind a former school in unincorporated Home Gardens, between Tilton and Belgium. The property includes a home and large pole barn garage.
When firefighters were called out, they were told not to go to the scene because of potential danger from an armed individual, so they parked their vehicles in the lot of the old school. At one point, Tilton firefighters were seen unrolling hose from a truck and carrying it toward the residence.
They left the scene around 4:30 p.m. However, sheriff’s investigators remained on the scene.
It’s not the first time Vermilion County sheriff’s deputies have been called to the Georgetown Road residence.
At 4:13 a.m. Nov. 21, 2013, deputies responded to a domestic disturbance that resulted in a deputy shooting then-20-year-old Emory, who lived there with relatives. He was hospitalized for several days with non-life-threatening injuries to his left jaw.
On his release from the hospital, Emory was arrested and charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated assault to a person 60 years old and one count of assault.

After an Illinois state police investigation, then-Vermilion County State’s Attorney Randy Brinegar said the deputy’s actions in shooting Emory were justified.
And just three weeks ago, after numerous continuances, Emory pleaded guilty in that case to one count of reckless discharge of a firearm and was sentenced to 30 months of probation.

Newly elected chairman: Sales tax hike could be rejected, delayed by board

  • by: WHPO Editor
  • on: December 07, 2016
  • city: Watseka, Accroding to the Paxton Record more at paxtonrecord.net

Despite Iroquois County voters approving a ballot measure last month to raise the county’s sales tax by a quarter-cent to help fund public-safety operations, there is no guarantee that the tax hike will go into effect anytime soon.
One day after being elected chairman of the county board, rural Buckley resident John Shure said it is actually possible the board could reject the sales tax increase or delay it for months or even years.

“It is up to the county board to affirm or adopt (the sales tax increase), but before we can do that, I think we need to get more information on it,” Shure said Tuesday. “That’s something that we’re in the process of doing right now, so it’s hard to say where it will end up or what the outcome will be.
“We were authorized to impose a public safety tax in the county of a quarter of 1 percent, but the word ‘authorize’ is key — it doesn’t mean we have to do it,” Shure continued. “I guess we wouldn’t really ‘reject’ it, but we could do nothing or we could do something 10 years from now under that authorization. There’s no deadline on when that authorization needs to be done. Now, if we want to get it into effect as soon as possible, then we’d need to get it done no later than April. That’s kind of our deadline to get the paperwork done and sent to Springfield.”
The county’s existing sales tax rate is 6.25 percent. The quarter-cent increase would not apply to all merchandise sold in the county. Among items exempt from the tax would be unprepared food, titled vehicles and prescription medication.
Shure said concerns about the tax hike’s impact on retailers in Iroquois County is being explored as part of the fact-finding mission currently under way. Some are concerned that the county’s residents will travel to other counties with lower sales tax rates to do their shopping.
“If they’re spending their money elsewhere, in a sense that’s robbing their home county of that revenue,” Shure said.
To address such concerns, Shure said one thing that needs to happen before the tax increase is implemented is creating a “greater awareness among residents in this county to do their shopping in this county.”
“Most of the residents don’t understand where their sales taxes go,” Shure noted. “They think it goes to Springfield and they never see it again. But there’s a part of it that goes back to the county. ... If people would shop in this county, the merchants could carry a wider range of merchandise and there would be more jobs created. It’s something we need to address.”
Getting the word out about the benefits of shopping locally will be the responsibility of a multitude of community groups, including the county board, local government bodies and chambers of commerce, and the Iroquois Economic Development Association, Shure said.
“I think anybody and everybody would have some part to play in it,” Shure said. “But exactly how that information would be disseminated, we haven’t decided that yet. It’s something that’s really in its early stages.”
Sheriff Derek Hagen hopes that by adding a sales tax specifically for the purpose of funding public safety, the sheriff’s office, as well as the county’s dispatch center and Emergency Services & Disaster Agency, can avoid having to ask the county board to move revenue out of the general fund each year to assist with the funding of equipment purchases, staffing and other needs that arise.
Hagen said one thing the additional funds could be used for is the replacement of squad cars. Personnel could also be hired for the sheriff’s office. The dispatch center in Watseka — which Hagen said has been “struggling” financially — could also potentially use some of the revenue from the sales tax toward the funding of its personnel or equipment.

Shure replaces Anderson
Via a split vote, Shure was appointed chairman over the only other board member nominated for the county’s top leadership post — Donna Crow of Milford. Eleven board members voted to appoint Shure, while eight voted for Crow. Board member Russell Bills of Watseka abstained from the vote.
