Federal Probe Requested of Illinois Workers Compensation Arbitrator

Illinois Senator Kyle McCarter (R-Lebonon) has called for a Federal probe into the alleged actions of the arbitrator who allegedly delayed the hearing of a controversial case involving a State Trooper who was involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident while texting and driving  at 126 miles per hour.

As a result of  his distracted driving two teenagers were killed in the accident. The state trooper pleaded guilty to two counts of reckless homicide last year. He has since resigned from his job.
