You must read the newest article on www.nwherald.com/. Keith Nygren claims that Zane Seipler committed perjury!
First, let me say (trust me; I am not a crook) that I have not talked to Zane Seipler about this.
McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren claims that soon-to-be-reinstated Deputy Zane Seipler committed perjury. Read the article. I don't need to re-hash it here. You'll find it here: www.nwherald.com/2011/08/12/sheriff-accuses-former-deputy-of-perjury/a2ea2pp/ No doubt it will be on Page 1 of Saturday's Northwest Herald. Save it. Or bookmark this online article. And when the Northwest Herald archives it and wants $2.95 for it a week from now, just use your Woodstock library card to read it, free, at any time.
Attorney Jim Sotos' law firm colleague, Elizabeth K. Barton, got quoted before Sotos in the article. She said, "The documents were highly confidential and contained personal information about third-party officers, causing them embarrassment and damage to their reputations."
Funny how she didn't mention the confidential deposition of Scott Milliman that Sheriff Nygren told Undersheriff Zinke to give to Crystal Lake businessman Jose Rivera. Somehow that deposition got leaked to the Northwest Herald. And, somehow, the Northwest Herald story failed to mention that "indiscretion".
I have no idea who wrote "The Real MCSD Exposed" blog on blogger.com. But what I do know is that anyone can use anyone's email address for a secondary email, or even a primary one. I could set up a blog and put the sheriff's email address down for a secondary address. There are no checks when setting up a free blog. Personally, I do not believe that Zane had anything to do with it, and I think Nygren has crawled way out on the wrong limb of a very fragile tree in making such a charge against Zane.
Heck, I occasionally read www.realmcsoexposed.blogspot.com/, so my computer's IP address will show up there, too. And, for sure, I did not write it.
The article goes on to say, "Attorneys for the sheriff said Seipler 'willfully lied' to the court and that it was a 'stunning display of brazen misconduct.'" Do you think both Sotos and Barton said that? I doubt it. Sounds like Sotos' words to me. Miss Barton is too professional to say that.
I'd like to remind readers of a "stunning display of honesty" by Miss Barton in Judge Mahoney's court a couple of months ago, when she made an honest statement (aren't all attorneys' statements in court honest?) about the reason that Zane was fired. She said he was fired for complaining about racial profiling. That's exactly what she said. I was standing right next to her, and the transcription reports her exact words.
Doesn't Nygren say Zane was not fired for that reason? My money is on Miss Barton for telling the truth in court. Should Nygren be charged with perjury?
