In Alton, some say the police department is cracking down on sex offender registration. But the officer-in-charge there says, “They’re just doing it the way it’s supposed to be done.”
The city’s block parties kick off tomorrow and Alton Police say there are exceptions to Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons’ decision not to prosecute residents.
The decisions by some legal officials in Illinois come in the wake of a U.S. Court of Appeals decision that requires Illinois lawmakers to create concealed-carry legislation awaiting Gov. Quinn’s signature.
