We originally went to court today for the appearance of our dear friend Jennifer Robertson who resides somewhere in Wayne County, IL. Her boyfriend is filling the place of her imprisoned husband at this time in Jennifer's life and even came to court with her on the past two court appearances including the one today. Many of you know this man as Randy Legg who was out allegedly stating that he was gonna find the owners of this site and beat their asses. Well Randy hasn't appeared to make good on his alleged threat but he did make the day for Jennifer a little easier. You see outside of the Home Invasion and Beating Charges that Jennifer has managed to avoid in a plea of the century here in Wayne County, she also has a DUI charge that was tacked to her hosts of court dates.
Jennifer Robertson was arrested on preliminary charges of Drug Paraphernalia, DUI & a traffic ticket for not driving on the right side of the road. She was allegedly under the influence of Drugs as we took things but today in Wayne County Circuit Court it was clearly stated that Jennifer's DUI was indeed an Alcohol related matter and not necessarily that of drugs.
We find this unfortunate as she stated that she would like to drop the OP against her imprisoned husband earlier in 2013 when she and he were set free out of Jail. She stated in open court that there would not be a need for the OP because they only fought when they did drugs, and since they were now court ordered not to do drugs they would get along just fine.
Judge Stanley had previously stated that same day that any infractions of any law could result in the possibility of the charges that were dropped in their pleas could be re-filed. That occurred in the case of John Robertson when he couldn't keep his hands to himself on a second occasion and is now sitting in the comforts of IDOC.
Jennifer had little to say today other than she was present and that she indeed wanted a court appointed attorney which is Matt Vaughn on the DUI charge. The beating case she was involved in with her husband John Robertson and Mary Denise Harrison remains to be handled and has a court date of Nov 18, 2013 @ 2pm. The DUI charge along with her traffic ticket is set for Dec 17, 2013 @ 9am
In other court happenings, Arrest Warrants were issued for a couple of boys who didn't have the time to show up in court today. If you had court for 1pm Oct 22, 2013 you may want to call and check to make sure this isn't you if you just flat out didn't show up.
The case against Rodney Esmon was reset for Dec 3, 2013 @ 2pm which includes a misdemeanor charge of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
A case against Jason Harris for the current charge of Misdemeanor charge of hitting someone and causing bodily harm, was continued to Nov 12, 2013 @ 1pm. David Williams was overheard as saying more charges could be filed by then against Harris. No elaboration was made as to what the new charges could be or if it was even connected to the current Battery charge.
