Bail was modified today to allow the ex-wife of former Chicago Bull Eddy Curry to have supervised contact with their son, who she allegedly beat on April 4, according to officials.
Will County Judge Richard Schoenstedt agreed to allow Korie M. Kellogg, 30, of Mokena to have the contact, in response to an emergency motion from her attorney, Jeff Tomczak.
Mokena Police arrested Kellogg of the 11200 block of Pin Oak Circle on April 4 after observing welts and bruises on the child’s face and body that were caused by a belt, said Cmdr. Dan Rankovich.
He said authorities at the boy’s school told Kellogg to take her son to a local hospital for an examination, and reported the boy’s condition to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. The police investigator observed the youth’s condition at the hospital, Rankovich said.
Kellogg is scheduled to be arraigned April 25 on a charge of aggravated battery to a pre-teen, and is free on $25,000 bail.
Tomczak termed the incident “strictly a case of proper parental discipline” and said he is asking Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow to review and reconsider the Class 3 felony charge, which carries a 2- to 5-year sentence if convicted.
Tomczak served as Will County state’s attorney for four years.
