The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (http://bit.ly/1d1oBt0) reports the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission seeks a hearing over Williamson County State's Attorney Charles Garnati's use of racially charged language to an all-white jury.
That came during Marcus Marshall's 2011 trial for a Marion shooting death.
Marshall was later convicted and sentenced to 85 years in prison, but a state appellate court has ordered him retried.
In prosecuting the black defendant, Garnati in addressing jurors included a reference to "our white world'' even though race had nothing to do with the case.
A comment-seeking message was left Friday with Garnati.
