Kane County State’s Attorney
History of the Kane County State’s Attorney
There were no county prosecutor offices in Illinois for the first 54 statehood years. Prosecutors were selected in every Illinois multi-county judicial court. They were in charge of legal advising and the prosecution of each criminal case. The 1870 Constitution of Illinois stated that in 1872 and every four years after that each county’s voters would vote for a state’s attorney. Kane County followed the guidelines outlined in the Constitution and formed the Kane County State’s Attorney office shortly after.
The method of local prosecutor selection has not changed. Prior to beginning his own practice, Andrew Nickel spent nearly five years as a prosecutor in both Kane in Kendall County. As an Assistant State’s Attorney in Kane County, Andrew litigated a wide range of cases including DUI, felonies, and misdemeanors.
