WAUKEGAN, Ill. - Former Lake County coroner Dr. Thomas Rudd has been indicted on five counts of perjury alleging he lied on nominating petitions when seeking re-election in 2016.
The felony indictments were delivered Wednesday by a grand jury. A judge later issued an arrest warrant for the 70-year-old Lake Forest resident.
State's Attorney Mike Nerheim says an issue with Rudd's petitions was brought to his attention, and he turned it over to an independent prosecutor to investigate.
Rudd couldn't be reached for comment.
