Special prosecutor asked to ta

A special prosecutor has been requested to handle a case involving a Fairview Heights police officer.

The Illinois State Police Public Integrity Unit began investigating the unidentified officer in connection with an alleged criminal action against a woman who works in the St. Clair County state's attorney's office.

State's Attorney Robert Haida said he asked that a prosecutor from the Appellate Prosecutor's Office handle the case because of the conflict of interest.

"An allegation of criminal conduct by another person was made by one of my employees," Haida said.

He declined to elaborate on the nature of the allegations.

The officer was placed on administrative leave with pay while the Public Integrity Unit investigated, said Fairview Heights Police Chief Ed Delmore. He declined to elaborate.

No information was released about the victim.

The Illinois State's Attorneys Appellate Prosecutor's office routinely handles appeals of cases for local prosecutors and steps in when local prosecutors have conflicts of interest in cases. Counties pay the Appellate Prosecutor's Office an annual fee of $30,000 for such services.
