It is not just a problem for Chicago, but impacts people in other states. Man on electronic monitoring in Cook County now wanted in Ohio, where he is accused of pulling gun on deputies
So he was arrested for murder, and instead of being held without bail he was released with electronic monitoring. That hasn't proven to be particularly effective at anything. Maybe it is good PR or something.
A Chicago man released on electronic monitoring while awaiting trial on murder charges is being sought in Ohio after he allegedly pulled a gun on sheriff’s deputies during a traffic stop there and then evaded arrest.
Juan Torkelson, 28, was charged in Cook County in June with first-degree murder and attempted murder in the fatal stabbing of one person and the wounding of three others in a 2019 attack on the Northwest Side.
Despite the monitoring, he ends up in Ohio threatening a pair of deputies with a gun, when they try to pull him over.
As of Sunday morning, Torkelson remained at large.
According to a news release from the Madison County sheriff’s office, Torkelson was described as “armed and dangerous.”
Hat tip to Second City Cop - Another EM Murderer Loose, in which he notes...
Had he murdered the officer, that would have been on Crimesha's and Dart's hands.
And we still haven't seen any in-depth media reports on the nearly 500 inmates from Cook County - many for violent felonies - that Crimesha released and Dart can't find, demonstrating how Dart controls the coverage of his incompetence by hiring spouses, offspring and actual former media persons for six-figure jobs.
