Meet Randi Freese

Randi Freese comes from a family of first responders and law enforcement.

Randi Freese comes from a family of first responders and law enforcement. Her father has served as both a firefighter and police officer and she has one brother who is a firefighter and another who is a police officer. This example set her on a course toward public service in the law and ultimately the prosecutor’s office.

Randi attended Ball State University for her undergrad degree and then the DePaul University College of Law. Nearly a decade and a half ago, while still in law school, Randi interned in the McHenry State’s Attorney’s office headed by Lou Bianchi. It was during that internship that Randi found her calling as a prosecutor.

Upon completion of the bar examination in 2010, then State’s Attorney, Lou Bianchi offered Randi a job as an Assistant State’s Attorney. Randi worked her way up through the office, prosecuting every type of crime in this county. Randi’s success can be measured by the pace with which she climbed the ladder in the office. Over the course of the last 8 years, Randi has personally tried nearly all of McHenry County’s murders and high-profile cases. Most recently, in the first case of its kind in Illinois, Randi was the lead prosecutor in the case against former DCFS employee Carlos Acosta for the death of AJ Freund.

Throughout her career Randi was rewarded with growing responsibilities by her mentors, Lou Bianchi and current State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally. Her leadership in the courtroom and the operations of the State’s Attorney’s office has elevated her to 1st Assistant State’s Attorney, second in command and responsible for the operations of the office.

With the decision by State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally to step down as the Republican Nominee in the November 5th General Election, Randi is pursuing the nomination to fill the vacancy that has occurred as a result. Randi is actively seeking the support of the Republican Precinct Committeepersons involved in that process.

Randi resides in Crystal Lake with husband, Robert, and their son Michael.
