[IL] Sheriff's Deputy Pugesek Found Not Guilty Of Injury Domestic Battery

Lake County Illinois Sheriff's Deputy Leroy Pugesek was found not guilty of a Class A misdemeanor “domestic battery/physical contact” charge after first denying that it had happened, then stating he was defending his property. The ex-girlfriend said that he had grabbed her out of a chair and thrown her down a flight of stairs. He said she fell down the steps and after he had thrown her out of his door and locked it that she repeatedly charged his door. Though media reported that the woman "suffered injuries to her head, neck and breast in the attack", McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham ruled Deputy Pugesek not guilty citing that the girlfriend's testimony was inconsistent. ("Inconsistent" is not further defined and could mean a variety of things.)
