Proviso Probe

KLEPT, it doesn't just happen in Proviso Township

Suburban Life (Robert Carr) reports that Jerry Marzullo has landed a gig teaching criminal justice at Morton College. Marzullo is being prosecuted for felony battery. It was on election night and Marzullo allegedly beat a political rival.

Wait, it gets better!
The college president said he didn't know Marzullo's name was on a list of hires for this fall's classes.

It might be plausible except Marzullo's father, Frank Marzullo, is on the board of trustees.
Frank also faces two counts of aggravated battery and four counts of official misconduct in the same case.

He didn't abstain from the vote.
The college president said he could not comment on any conflict of interest policies in voting.

Board President Fran Reitz, reached on the phone for comment, said "it's possible" that she approved the hiring of Marzullo. She refused further comment.

BTW, who is the attorney for Morton?
