Access to search warrants not always clear

Is a search warrant a public record in Illinois? Usually, but not always. Sometimes the answer is unclear, according to an official from the office of state attorney general and an Illinois Press Association attorney. IPA attorney Don Craven said Ogle County officials have made an inadequate case for their denials of Sauk Valley Media's requests to see the search warrant that resulted in drug paraphernalia possession charges against a Mount Morris man in August.
