The Madison County State's Attorney is seeking an appeal of a ruling by the Illinois Appellate Court in the case of an alleged threat made on the SIU-Edwardsville campus by a now former student.  27 year old Olutosin Oduwole was released from state prison in Jacksonville on Monday after the Appellate Court last week overturned a Madison County Court conviction from 2011.

Tom Gibbons is calling on Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to file a petition with the Illinois Supreme Court to overturn the Appellate Court that ruled there was not enough evidence to convict Oduwole in the case.  Oduwole (pictured) was accused of planning a "murderous rampage" on the SIUE campus in 2007 after police reportedly found a threating note in his vehicle.  A subsequent search of his apartment allegedly turned up three handguns.  Oduwole has maintained the words on the piece of paper were lyrics to a rap song.  The Appeals Court ruled there was not enough evidence to show Oduwole intended to carry out any threat, and threw out the conviction of attempting to make a terrorist threat and of unlawful possession or storage of weapons in a public supported building.  He was sentenced to five years in jail, but was set to be released next year.
