- Chris Crowley has just been arrested for two felonies for his campaign activities.
- Crowley is running for State Attorney.
- Crowley has been stating his will be tough on crime.
NBC-2 is reporting that State Attorney Candidate Chris Crowley has been arrested and charged with two felonies. A warrant was issued and Crowley turned himself in. We covered the alleged illegal activity several weeks ago on Crimcourts. The case is going to be handled by another circuit prosecutor, due to the possible conflict of interest. He is charged with operating a lottery and violating campaign law.
Crowley was seen at a campaign fundraiser promoting 50/50 raffle tickets to raise money for his campaign. He later posted the video of the activity himself, which is an illegal lottery and a campaign violation. When interviewed by NBC-2, he admitted the 50/50 raffle, and said he didn’t deposit the money. For the record, ignorance of the law is no excuse, especially for someone running to be the chief law enforcement officer.
Our previous story on Crowley’s illegal campaign activity is here, and we did a story on reports of his incompetence as a prosecutor here.
