Inside Sheriff's Department
Each of the buttons are three months of billing. These are the credit card statements of the KC Sheriff's department only. Sorry has month of Sept. missing. Today 8/4/10 added an audit and audit story done back at the beginning of 2008. Essentially, an audit was done that found the Sheriff's Dept. had questionable practices and the County Board has done nothing about it.
Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010: A Easi v. Tichava/Randall Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Deposition indicates Chief Deputy Tichava ordered Phil Smith to put a bar tab on the county credit card. The condensed deposition document has been edited to pull together the parts where Mr. Smith is questioned about the incident. A Beacon News Story reports the new finding that Todd Milliron dug out of the court documents. The Ledger-Sentinel story gives additional background information. Right after the Audit referenced in section above, the Sheriff's office updated their Travel Expenses Policy. If you want to know the operating standards the Sheriff's office is suppose to adhere to, you can look at the Rules and Regulations.
This is a Hotel bill detail showing a four day stay for Sheriff Randall in New Orleans in February of 2010. One item is a movie rental for one movie at $13.99. Since the taxpayers bought this movie it would be nice to know what movie he rented and if it was worth 14 dollars?
This is a check written by the Sheriff's office made out to "Cash" for $60,000.00 Dollars. No one outside the Sheriff's office knows what account the money was put into or where it went.

The Sexual Harassment Lawsuit against the Kendall County Sheriff's Department second in command Chief Deputy Terry Tichava was settled this week. No one at the Sheriff's Dept. will be disciplined as a result of the settlement. This is a sad day for the people of Kendall County and a complete embarrassment and disgrace to the Sheriff's Dept.. What does this say to the people sitting in Kendall County Jail for their alleged wrong doings? Sheriff Richard Randall considers this case closed. It is nice to know he is up for re-election. Here is a quote from Page 8 of the Opposition document, "Chief Tichava grabbed Plaintiff's crotch, buttocks and pinched her breast at the Dec. 2006 office holiday party." The following are the News stories and legal documents from the case:
