Elgin Library Trustee Randy Hopp Not Yet Fit to Stand Trial

Elgin library trustee sent to downstate mental health facility. (The Daily Herald, 8/9/2012)

Excerpt:  A Kane County judge refused Wednesday to intervene in the state’s plan to have Randall L. Hopp, a Gail Borden Public Library trustee accused of felony battery in a domestic incident involving his elderly parents, sent to a maximum security facility downstate until he is ruled fit to stand trial.

Hopp, 61, of the 1500 block of Pamela Court, Elgin, is banned from the library, and in late June was ruled unfit by a jury to stand trial.

Since then he’s been held in the Kane County jail while the state’s Department of Human Services decides on a treatment plan and facility for him.
