Kane County defense attorneys donate police dog vest, $5K in honor of slain K-9 Hudson, sheriff objects

Sheriff Ron Hain discounts gesture as ‘a promotional scam’

Kane County defense attorney Liam Dixon presents a check for $5,000 to Kane County Sheriff’s Det. Luke Weston Tuesday, June 6 at The Wine Exchange in St. Charles. The money is to be donated to the Warrior Dog Foundation in honor of K-9 Hudson who was killed in a shootout. The attorneys also donated a vest to the K-9 unit. Sheriff Ron Hain dismissed the effort as ‘a promotional scam.’
K9 Hudson was killed during a confrontation with a suspected carjacker Wednesday at Randall Road and Fabyan Parkway in Geneva.
