Drick up for Trial in March.

A trial date of March 12th has been set for former Joliet Fire Chief Joseph Drick and his wife Cheri Drick. The two are accused of stealing about 200 thousand dollars from the bank accounts of the late Gladys Farrington. The Dricks had struck up a friendship with the elderly woman after offering her a ride on a winter morning. The couple alledgedly used Farrington’s money for various personnal expenses. Farrington died in the summer of 2005.

The Dricks allegedly began using the money in February 2003, shortly after Cheri Drick obtained power of attorney over Gladys Farrington’s financial affairs, prosecutors said. Seven days after gaining power of attorney, a $57,000 account was closed, then states attorney Jeff Tomczak said. The money was then deposited into an account for Drick Educational Services, which is a company that Joseph Drick ran.

    You don’t have any idea what you’re talking about anonymous. I have known the Dricks for many years and know that they in fact cared a great deal about Gladys. I had met her at the Dricks in the past. Why don’t you try asking the 3 attorneys that were the prime witnesses for Glasgow’s little toady Jim Koch (that would be Boetto, Gavlin and some other little legal bitch from Chicago) how much they “looted” Gladys’ estate for in the wake of all this. It is MUCH MORE than what they accused the Dricks of. Pay attention to the truth and not what those little blue journalists Stewart Warren & and Joe “Hose-boy” from the Herald Snooze have to say. They wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the ass. Warren even commented once that they have to “keep their line of communications open with the state’s attorney’s office so they can get their information”. Yeah right. Lie to the public so they can continue to get ratings.

    I know nothing about the Dricks case, but the Stewie quote explains a whole lot about the Herald News lack of reporting. It’s the chicken or the egg reporting:

    … Don’t publicly report news so you can get more insider news on news you won’t report …

    I think my dog caught his tail on that one.
