DuPage County Judge Patrick O’Shea may lose his seat. The Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board filed a complaint with the Illinois Courts Commission against him, with charges of conduct “prejudicial to the administration of justice” and bringing “the judicial office into disrepute.” O’Shea is charged with one count of making false comments to detectives and a misleading testimony before the Judicial Inquiry Board in relation to a September 2017 case when he fired a bullet into a neighbor’s apartment unit in Wheaton. He was also charged with attempting to retaliate against a court clerk who filed a sexual harassment complaint against him. O’Shea could face a public reprimand, censure, suspension, or removal from the bench if he’s found guilty of the charges. Though his courthouse access is restricted, O’Shea is on the November ballot seeking reelection.
Yesterday evening you may have spotted some costumed canines running around Naperville. Two Bostons hosted their annual Howl-O-Ween pet parade for super dogs, floral dogs, and even dogs disguised as other animals. They collected tasty treats along downtown’s sidewalks and could take pictures with their owners at a photo booth.
