ISP is after one of its own: retired trooper chargedPosted by Jack Howser on Wednesday, February 16th, 2011 @ 9:40 am.
RICHLAND CO.—The ongoing cannibalization between young Illinois State Police officers and retired officers of the same has taken a serious turn as of yesterday with the arrest of one from the latter group.
Retired ISP Sgt. Kelly Henby, 53, of Olney, traveled to Charleston yesterday evening to post bond on a warrant for his arrest in Coles County.
The charge is that Henby, a licensed private detective (NOT “private investigator,” but detective) who has been practicing since shortly after his retirement from ISP a few years ago, was for Unlicensed Practicing as Private Detective in Coles.
There’s no indication on the Coles County charges of what it was Henby was investigating up there. However, sources have advised Disclosure about the situation, and out of deference to all involved, we’re withholding this until official confirmation. It does indeed, as is being reported, have to do with a case ISP was investigating in Wayne County, however. Henby, we have learned, was reportedly investigating the conduct of an ISP officer in that venue.
Henby’s charge is merely a Class A misdemeanor and his bond was a whopping $150.
Henby is a former mayor of Olney, having served prior to the administrations of the reviled Tommie Fehrenbacher.
