Rock appointed as Interim State's Attorney in Ogle County


15th Circuit Judge Val Gunnarsson appointed Mike Rock Monday as the interim State's Attorney in Ogle County. He replaces Ben Roe who was sworn in as a Circuit Judge yesterday morning in Oregon.

Rock was Roe's 1st Assistant in his office for the past 2 years. This is his 2nd time with Ogle County in the SA's office. He spent 6 years prior to that before going into private practise. Rock has worked in private practise for 10 1/2 years.

A permanent State's Attorney for Ogle County will be discussed during the next county board meeting on January 15th in Oregon.

On December 18th, the Ogle County board voted 13-11 in rejecting a recommendation from Ogle County Board Chairman Kim Gouker of Byron in appointing Polo attorney Thomas Suits to the position.

Suits was 1 of 4 candidates interviewed for State's Attorney by a 5-member committee. The other candidates were Rock, former judge Robbin Minnis, and Ogle County public defender Eric Morrow.

Gouker plans to recommend 1 of the 4 attorneys during the meeting on January 15th.

The person appointed as the new State's Attorney in Ogle County will hold the position for 2 years since Roe was re-elected last November to a 4-year term. There will be a special election for the final 2 years of the term in November of 2014.
