From ProFootballTalk.com:

A year ago former NFL running back Darren McFadden was arrested for DWI when he was found asleep at the wheel in a Whataburger drive-thru. Now he’s going to jail.

McFadden pleaded guilty to drunk driving and got sentenced to four days in jail, according to TMZ.com.

The deal also will result in McFadden paying a fine and getting his license suspended for 90 days.

McFadden was a star at running back who twice finished second in Heisman Trophy voting. The Raiders made him the fourth overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft and signed him to a six-year, $60 million contract. He played seven years with the Raiders and then three more years with the Cowboys.

Chicago Bar Association’s Judicial Evaluation Ratings have been Released for the March, 2020 Primary

The Chicago Bar Association has released its ratings for the March, 2020 primaries.

I have been a long-time member of the Judicial Evaluation Committee, and am currently serving as a Vice Chair.  We have been working on these evaluations for the last eight months or so.  For each candidate that submitted a completed questionnaire, our volunteer members prepared an investigative report, which includes background and reference checks from attorneys who have worked with or were adverse to (or in the case of sitting judges, appeared in front of) the Candidate.  After that, the Candidate was brought before our Committee for a hearing where he or she could discuss his or her career and respond to our questions.

This election cycle, there are candidates for Illinois Supreme Court, Appellate Court and Circuit Court Judges.  Please take a look at our ratings at the CBA website by clicking here.  At the site, you can get our complete “smart guide” findings or the shorter, two page “pocket guide.”
