A former Schaumburg police officer that was said to go on trial Tuesday on charges that he sold illegal drugs after seizing them from dealers, was instead dismissed from the DuPage County Courthouse Tuesday afternoon.
John Cichy was arrested back in 2013 along with Matthew Hudak and Terrance O’Brien after the drug dealer they used to re-sell the drugs they confiscated, acted as a confidential informant.
It was the use of that informant that defense attorney’s believe may have helped in the decision to dismiss the case.
The DuPage County State Attorney cited moral, ethical and legal obligations in announcing that he would not proceed with the criminal prosecution against Cichy.
