The Illinois House of Representatives has created a new committee to address inequalities in the state’s criminal justice system, while the chairman of the new committee faces his own legal problems.

State Rep. LaShawn Ford is the chairman of the new Restorative Justice Committee.

He’s also been indicted for bank fraud.

One Response to Indicted Illinois legislator in charge of criminal justice committee

  1. After being born and living in Illinois over 40 years it is sad to see the state is going to hell fiscally and politically. Now as a resident of Mississippi the Republicans here have the majority in the House, Senate, and State for the first time in 135 years. The Tea Party meets regularly in the Capatial with the Governor. Keep working and don’t give up in making the necessary changes that won’t happen quickly.
