Traffic safety a point of emphasis this holiday season

Through Jan. 2, police in Illinois will be taking part in a Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. According to data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 839 people were killed in drunk driving accidents in December 2018. Of those deaths, 285 occurred during the Christmas and New Year holiday period. Authorities urge individuals who are planning on drinking alcohol to designate a driver or to use a ride sharing service to get home safely.

Illinois Supreme Court overturns sex offender internet ban

The Illinois Supreme Court ruled on Nov. 21 that prohibiting convicted sex offenders from accessing social media websites like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn violated the First Amendment right to free speech. The six participating justices voted unanimously to overturn the state law ban. Chief Justice Anne Burke did not take part in the proceedings. The justices heard arguments in a case involving a man who was sentenced to four years of probation in McLean County for the sexual abuse of a minor. The man committed his crime when he was a teenager and did not use the internet to contact his victim.
