Cullerton’s Son Is in Trouble

A son of Illinois Senate President John Cullerton has been charged with sexual battery after allegedly groping a woman in a bar in Memphis.

Carroll Cullerton, 26, was arrested early last Friday after a woman alleged that he touched her inappropriately.

A Senate spokesperson says only that the incident was unrelated to state business or the Senate president’s office.
