    March 2015:

    Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller keeps postponing the first court date. Why? Good question. Incompetence, doubtful; conflict of interest?

    In the meantime, Tiffany Fassler, with two counts of murder, still walks around scot-free. Her bond was reduced from $500,000 to a mere $50,000 by Ms. Miller. Incompetence, doubtful; conflict of interest?

    Dixon stepmom's murder trial finally has a date

    http://www.saukvalley.com/2017/02/03...-date/awwery5/

    The trial of a Dixon woman accused of injuring her 7-year-old stepson and eventually causing his death is set for Oct. 23, almost 7 years after the boy was injured.

    Three weeks have been set aside for the trial of Tiffany Fassler, 41. She is accused of kicking Colton Fassler on Dec. 30, 2010, causing him to hit his head on a bathroom vanity and resulting in severe brain damage that prosecutors say led to his death 11 months later.

    Fassler is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, each of which carries 20 to 60 years in prison, and four counts of aggravated battery to a child, which carries 6 to 30 years.

    Stepmom seeks change of venue in 7-year-old's death

    http://www.saukvalley.com/2017/06/05...death/atktrqp/

    A Dixon woman charged with causing the death of her 7-year-old stepson 6-and-a-half years ago wants her trial held in another county.

    Extensive local, and even national, news coverage has tainted the jury pool and Tiffany Fassler, 41, can't get a fair trial in Lee County, her attorney, Paul Whitcombe of Dixon, said in his 8-page motion, which is accompanied by more than 125 articles by media outlets, and social media comments – nearly 300 pages in all.

    The motion was filed May 9; the state has until July 16 to respond. Monday, a hearing on the motion was set for July 31; the trial tentatively is set for Oct. 23.

    This is crazy....taking so long to go to trial. What defense can she possible have for kicking a six year old in the chest? Can you imagine the force in that kick? A grown 125 lb or more adult delivering a kick to a child that size? He must have flown like a football into the counter/sink.

    Venue change denied in stepmom's murder trial

    http://www.saukvalley.com/2017/07/19...trial/abs60mx/

    A Dixon woman accused of causing the death of her 7-year-old stepson after kicking him into a vanity in 2010 will not get a change of venue, Lee County Court Judge Jacquelyn D. Ackert ruled Monday.
    Meanwhile, a 402 conference with Ackert has been set for Aug. 17.

    "The only purpose of a 402 conference is that, in the unlikely event that a tentative agreement is offered and accepted, the parties would be able to ensure that agreement is also acceptable to the court, who is the final arbiter of any proposed agreement."

    Step-mom asking to have some charges dismissed in 2011 murder case

    http://www.saukvalley.com/2017/11/12...-case/az4vqcr/

    In his motion, Thompson is asking Judge Jacquelyn Ackert to dismiss three of the four aggravated battery charges, saying that the language in the charging document is too vague to sustain the charges.

    Three of the four aggravated battery charges accuse Fassler of causing "great bodily harm" without specifying what that harm was, which is why they should be dismissed, Thompson wrote in his motion.

    A hearing on Tiffany D. Fassler's motion to dismiss is set for Dec. 20.
