The presentence report in the heroin possession and weapons case of former St. Clair County Circuit Judge Michael Cook was filed Friday in federal court.
The report prepared by U.S. Probation Officer Eric T. Hanson is sealed and not available to the public.
U.S. District Judge Joe Billy McDade ordered a new investigation on Jan. 8, stating that there were reasons to impose a stiffer sentence than the 18 months agreed to by prosecutors and the defense.
McDade stated in a written order that there were three reasons to impose a longer sentence: the fact that Cook was a judge, that the charges disrupted governmental functions, and that they caused the loss of public confidence in the judicial system.
Cook's sentencing is now set for Feb. 26.
