Authorities say a police officer who is running for Livingston County sheriff made a successful bid in McLean County court to have his son's bond reduced on burglary charges.The boy gets busted for burglary in the officer's home county and is let go on bond. Then is charged later for 3 counts of burglary in another county and his bond is reduced. The poor kid just can't stay out of other people's homes.
Fairbury Police Lt. Michael Frickey asked to speak Thursday during a custody hearing after prosecutors asked for a $50,000 bond for his 18-year-old son, Dane.
Michael Frickey identified himself as a police officer and asked if a lower bond could be set for his son, who faces one count of residential burglary and two counts of burglary.
Lt. Frickey also told the judge that a Livingston County judge set a $4,000 bond for his son on a recent burglary charge.
Dane Frickey was released later after posting $1,000, which was 10 percent of a $10,000 bond.
Nope, no favoritism here.
