Still Wanted Criminal Sexual Assault Suspect has bond set by Judge

Michael E. Ross

Michael E. Ross

An Illinois State Warrant has been issued for Michael E. Ross, age 20, for Criminal Sexual Assault on January 19, 2014.

According to details released so far by Springfield Police, they say the victim that Ross assaulted was unable to understand the nature of the act or was unable to give knowing consent.  When we asked the Springfield Police Department for more details, they refused to release anymore details other than to say that there is still an active investigation.

A Sangamon County Judge has set bail at $100,000 and is allowing any law enforcement agency outside of the State of Illinois to arrest Ross if he is found.  At this time the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office reports that Ross has not been arrested as of yet and that the warrant is active for his arrest.

Springfield Leaks under attack by the City of Springfield

In the past few weeks, Springfield Leaks has found itself in a few legal wars with the City of Springfield’s outside attorney firm Noll Law Offices.  The Noll Law Offices is attempting to find the identities behind Springfield Leaks.  Springfield Leaks has even had to go as far as hiring a law firm ourselves to help defend ourselves from Subponea’s being issued by the Noll’s.  Our belief is that the Mayor of Springfield, Illinois is directing the Noll Law Office to find out the individuals behind Springfield Leaks so they can find out which Springfield Police Officers or other high profile individuals, if any, are behind Springfield Leaks or even feeding us information.  Not only just providing us information, but also who were the whistle-blowers in the Shredding of the Springfield Police Internal Affairs files.

A question that was asked of us earlier today was what do we ultimately want?  We want the truth to come out.  As time goes on, we have an ultimate mission and that mission lead to the creation of Springfield Leaks and lead to several individuals coming together and saying we had enough with the good ol boys network.  Were greatly assured by our strong legal team that everyone behind Springfield Leaks or any tipsters will be protected.

The City of Springfield and Noll law office will not run us to the ground just because they’re afraid of the amount of subscribers or how far our stories get.  They’re just so afraid of what will come out in the next few months that they want to bring us down…. sorry won’t work!  We will continue to report!  The subponea’s to google or our website provider does not deter us.  We figure well go public with what you’re trying to do so the public will know that you’re trying to bring down Springfield Leaks.  While the Noll Law Office and City of Springfield is wasting the City of Springfield Citizen’s tax dollars on a failing attempt to reveal the identities behind Springfield Leaks and how we gather our news, well continue to work on bringing the truth to all of the Springfield, Illinois readers.

Our appreciation goes out to all of our subscribers, readers and tipsters.  We are Springfield Leaks only because of the Springfield, Illinois community.  And like we always say – we can guarantee you that any tips submitted to us will always remain 100% confidential.
