http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-man-accused-of-trying-to-bribe-witness-20130209,0,7332816.story

Here's a link to the Chicago Tribune story from February 9, 2013

Man accused of trying to bribe witness

Note that the 2010 issue re: allegations from the local gas and electric companies of stolen service have not yet been solved.

"In 2010, Cook County prosecutors charged Sher, of the 6500 block of North Navajo Avenue, with felony theft and money laundering. His wife, Holly Sher, was charged with the same crimes.

"That case is still pending, according to court records."

As for the new problem,

"Joel Sher now faces three new criminal charges, including subornation of perjury, bribery and communicating with a witness, who was not identified in Cook County bond court Saturday.

"Sher’s defense attorney declined to comment after the hearing. Sher, who was held in lieu of a $75,000 bond, is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday."

This is a link to the 2010 Chicago Tribune story of March 25, 2010, for those who aren't familiar with the issues.

Oh, so now they are trying to fool everyone into thinking they are not buying Evanger's, when they are?

Isn't that something like bait and switch?

I found this link on the company's Facebook page:  http://petbusiness.com/articles/2012-08-28/Siblings-Launch-Against-the-Grain-Food-

"WHEELING, Ill.–Twins Brett and Chelsea Sher—who have both been heavily involved at Evanger’s since their parents took over in 2003—launched Against the Grain, a line of grain-free dog and cat food in May"

I considered  asking on the Facebook page how the felony theft, money laundering and bribery charges were going for their dad, but then I remembered Leslie's experience.  I'm not brave enough, lol.

No kidding  Tongue  Cheesy

You know, I would hate to lay the misdeeds of the parents on the kids, but the article does say that the kids have been heavily involved with Evangers.  I'm convinced that the new food is setting the kids up to run the company should the parents be convicted.

 Grin Grin on the black sedans ! Actually I was afraid of the fedex truck dropping off more unordered food LOL ! On the Sher's & the attempt to make it look like a new food with no baggage, I am not surprised. Anyone who is foolish enough to feed anything they make or question them in any way is in for an unpleasant surprise ! And an expensive one  Angry.
eta you notice I haven't changed my little extortion dig & in memory of my angels I never will !
