Sorensen Arraignment Set In Chicago

McLean County Board Chair Matt Sorensen will be arraigned on federal fraud charges Monday. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Illinois says the 2 p.m. hearing will be in the Dirksen Federal Building on South Dearborn in Chicago.

Sorensen is accused of colluding with a member of the firm McKinsey and Company to falsely bill State Farm Insurance for work not performed. Sorensen allegedly took more than $370,000 of the proceeds in kickbacks from Navdeep Arora.

The five count indictment of Sorensen also refers to another person called Co-schemer A.

U.S. Attorney's Spokesman Joe Fitzpatrick says bail will be discussed at the Monday hearing before Magistrate Judge Michael Mason.
