JOLIET – The Rev. Richard Smith of Immaculate Conception Church in Morris is not a target of a Will County Grand Jury investigation.

Will County State’s Attorney Jim Glasgow confirmed today Smith is not a target, although he did testify during a secret grand jury session conducted Wednesday afternoon in a courtroom on the third floor of the county courthouse in Joliet.

“It’s just wrong for people to think that he is a target when he’s not,” Glasgow noted of Rev. Smith.
