A Shelby County grand jury has indicted a Windsor City Council member and a retired District 10 Illinois State Police trooper.

Windsor council member Jeremy Voris was indicted on a charge of official misconduct. Shelby County State's Attorney Gina Vonderheide said Voris is accused of knowing his wife, Ashley Voris, stole gasoline for use in her personal vehicle and charged it to the City of Windsor, and doing nothing to stop the theft. 

Ashley Voris, a part-time Windsor city employee, was not indicted, but has been arrested on a charge of misdemeanor theft under $500.

Jeremy Voris' charge is a Class 3 felony, since he is a public official. A Class 3 felony is punishable by up to two to five years in prison.

Vonderheide said both Jeremy and Ashley Voris have bonded out and are due in court in October.

The grand jury also indicted 56-year-old Richard Largen of rural Lakewood on a charge of official misconduct. Vonderheide said it's alleged that between June 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014, Largen used the law enforcement LEADS network to obtain information on certain females in Shelby County. Largen was still working as a state trooper at the time, although he retired as of July 31 this year.

Largen has posted bond and was released. He's next due in court on October 30.
