Judge white threatened
JOLIET, Ill. The Will County State’s Attorney’s office says a Mokena man accused of sending a threatening e-mail to Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White has been charged with misdemeanor harassment through electronic communications.
The office says the charge against 21-year-old Vahn Hickey carries a penalty of as long as six months in jail. Authorities say Hickey was arrested and was later released later on three thousand dollars bond. They say Hickey apparently wrote the e-mail, using obscene language and making death references, after learning that White’s office was going to suspend his driver’s license in connection with a traffic violation.
