Teenager charged with shooting police officer released from custody
A 17-year-old charged with shooting a Mounds, Illinois police officer was released from custody.
On Tuesday, Pulaski County State’s Attorney James Flummer said they had to release Williams from custody because of speedy trial provisions.
The provisions state that if a defendant is incarcerated beyond the time allowed in the provisions, the charges must be dismissed.
Flummer says they released Williams to make sure that did not happen.
A trial is set for February 22, 2016.
