Alton Evening Telegraph Saturday, Jan. 2, 1971 A-3 Former state V attorney Joseph Bartylak's probation ends By JOE MELOSI Telegraph Staff Writer EDWARDSVILLE - Joseph Bartylak, former Madison County state's attorney who left office in mid - term four years ago under suspicion of embezzling county funds, began the New Year with hopes for a new life. Thursday, Bartylak. 46, now living in St. Louis, was freed from probation by Circuit Judge Paul Verticchio, who presided in a hearing here. On Christmas eve, Bartylak had filed a petition seeking release from probation, saying that he was being seriously considered for a law position with the Legal Aid Society in St. Louis. During the past four years Bartylak has held several jobs in St. Louis, the last of which was as a department store clerk. In his order, Judge Ver- ticchio noted that "the defendant has given every indication of reformation and rehabilitation." The judge also noted that Bartylak had made full restitution of $37,808 to the county and additional amounts to private clients. Bartylak was placed on five- year probation Jan. 12, 1968 and fined $1000 after pleading guilty to one count of official misconduct in office. The plea came during a hearing Dec. 16, 1967 in which Bartylak withdrew his not guilty plea to the charge. In the hearing, 16 other counts alleging theft were dismissed by Verticchio on a motion by special prosecutor Edward Phelps. Bartylak was indicted March 10, 1967 in a 17 - count indictment for failing to turn over fines and fees collected by his office between May 28, 1965 and June 24, 1966 and for shorting some private clients. Bartylak, described as one of the most popular and competent attorneys ever to serve in the state's attorney office, resigned his post in December 1966 in the wake of charges. He was state's attorney in November 1964 after having served as assistant to Stale's Attorney Dick Mudge between 1956 and 1964. A report submitted by the probation office at the Jan. 12, 1968 hearing noted that Bartylak had fallen victim to alcoholism, which led to an end to a brilliant law career in Illinois. The report, urged that Bartylak be placed on probation. "Incarceration would not benefit society nor would it help in any way to rehabilitate him," it said. The report was written by Madison County Probation Officer Thurl Jones who also recommended that Bartylak be released from probation. The report also noted that Bartylak was under psychiatric care at Mricomi Bliss Hospital. St. Louis, and was active in the Alcoholics Anonymous program there.

Judge Verticchio was also advised that Bartylak is still undergoing therapy for the alcholic problem which he seems to have under control.

Alton 105-6109 FREE PRESCRIPTION DELIVERY MONTICELLO PLAZA EASTGATE DRUG STORES chairman, and the Board of JOSEPH BARTYLAK Couple sues supervisors over zoning EDWARDSVILLE — An East Alton couple has filed suit against the Madison County Board of Supervisors , because it turned down their ' petition for rezoning a tract along Rte. Ill as a mobile home site. The plantiffs, Thomas Williams and his wife, Goldie, of 141 S. Bellwood, named as defendants Wednesday the Madison County Board of -Supervisors, its Harold Landolt, County Zoning Appeals. Mr. and Mrs. Williams asked the circuit court in their declaratory judgement suit to declare the county zoning ordinance of 1962 void and that the action of the board of supervisors In overruling the Zoning Board of Appeals recommendation for rezoning of the tract be reversed. Williams and his wife recited in their suit that they bought the six - acre tract south of Airline Drive for $50,000 on July 30, and then applied for rezoning of the property, listed at 141 S. Bellewood, East Alton, from R-2 one - family residential to B-3 highway business district and asked a special use permit for a mobile home park and mobile home sales. Before a hearing on their petition, however, it was amended to provide for only operation of a mobile home sales use, similar to that property owned by the couple. The County Zoning Board of Appeals on Nov. 4 gave a decision recommending that the amended petition be granted and rezoning be allowed, the complaint recited. The property is on a busy highway on which other business property is located, the complaint stated. However, the County Board of Supervisors at its Nov. 25 meeting denied the recommendation of the Zoning Board of Appeals for rezoning the property for business use, leaving the tract in the R-2 one - family residential classification. In asking the court to declare that the propeity in question may by used for any use permitted in an apartment house district, the plaintiffs also request that the County Zoning Ordinance be held void as denying them use of their property without due process of law and their rights under the state and federal constitutions. In a second count, Mr. and Mrs. Williams ask a judicial review of the Board of Supervisors' decision overriding the Zoning Board of Appeals recommendation, and request that the decision be reversed and the Appeals Board's recommendation be allowed to stand.
