A local couple say their health and financial well-being are suffering as they ready for a possible second criminal trial.
Eric Weil, 50, admitted in an interview last week to blowing fentanyl powder into the air outside his house late last August. But he doesn’t understand how Alton police officer Jamie Fellows — who Weil says was standing about 30 feet away — was harmed.
Worse, Weil is in disbelief that he was charged and convicted by a jury of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, a felony.
