State's attorney files motion to dismiss former Saline Co. deputy's lawsuit

SALINE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Saline County man who served time behind bars for having sex with a minor filed a lawsuit back in June. Now, the state's attorney has filed a motion to dismiss that lawsuit.

Saline County State' Attorney Michael Henshaw filed the motion on July 31.

Todd Fort, Former Saline County chief deputy and school board member, says Henshaw, purposely released to news agency phone recordings of personal conversations he had with family and friends.

Fort argues that the conversations had nothing to do with the trial.

Court papers show Henshaw claims absolute immunity for responding to a Freedom of Information Act request as a state's attorney.

Fort also mentioned in his suit that Henshaw will not be the only person he looks at in regards to filing a lawsuit against.
