Warrant Out for Former D210 Employee Charged With Trespassing

Michael J. Angel failed to appear for follow-up court hearings after pleading guilty, court records show.

A warrant has been issued for a former Lincoln-Way High School District 210 employee after being fired.

Michael J. Angel, 42, of Frankfort, who was charged last spring with two counts of criminal trespassing on property at and high schools, failed to appear in court twice, according to Will County court records.

On Aug. 16 to guilty, receiving one-year supervision, fines of $600 and permission to coach youth football on school grounds on certain weekdays in the fall, court records show.

However, state prosecutors scheduled another hearing on Aug. 30 to ask that Angel receive permission from D210’s superintendent before stepping on school grounds again.

Court records show that Angel did not attend the follow up hearing, nor did he attend a supervision hearing scheduled Nov. 15. Prosecutors are now seeking to revoke the judge’s Aug. 16 sentencing.

Angel last worked for the district a few years ago, but a security guard at Central told police he had seen Angel's van parked at the school on multiple occasions. At 3 a.m. on April 19 he took down the license plate.

Angel told police he was looking for a box he left at the schools that contained personal paperwork.

Each count of criminal trespassing, a Class B misdemeanor, carries a maximum penalty of six months in Will County Jail, with optional probation, or a maximum fine of $1,500.
