Law license of former Tazewell State's Attorney candidate suspended

A gavel rests on a judge's bench in a blurry courtroom. The text "WCBU Courts" sits on top of that photo.

The state has suspended the law license of a former candidate for Tazewell County State's Attorney.

The Illinois Supreme Court indefinitely suspended Gabe Casey's license after a 2022 complaint alleged he made false statements to a couple regarding his client's intentions in a settlement demand, and threatened to file criminal charges against them unless they settled the claim.

The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission says Casey's license is suspended for one year until further order of the court. That means Casey must file a petition for reinstatement with the court before he can practice law again.
