Our View: Trust county to investigate Farrell matter
There should be no rush to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate recently departed State’s Attorney Chief Civil Assistant John Farrell.
For now, county officials are the ones in the best position to determine whether this was an isolated incident or there is a broader problem.
Farrell, who was the DeKalb County state’s attorney from 2009 to 2010, said he was resigning immediately Oct. 12 to deal with personal health issues. It was later discovered that his resignation had come under pressure from DeKalb County officials, whom Farrell had misled into believing that a county zoning case was under appeal when it had been settled a year earlier.
