Champaign Court Begins Day With Prayer

By Connor Ciecko

With news of looting and some violence in the Champaign area, the Champaign County Sheriff’s office is seeking peaceful resolution and working to ensure the safety and constitutional rights for all community members.

Champaign County State’s Attorney Julia Rietz shared a Facebook post earlier today of court security officers beginning their day with a prayer outside the county courthouse.  The Sheriff’s Department and local community leaders are urging peace and unity in this time of uncertainty.
