A Bloomington man is recovering after stabbing himself in a McLean County court room.
78-year-old Johnny Icard was in court Wednesday afternoon to hear whether a jury would convict him of sexually assaulting a young girl. Upon hearing the guilty verdict, and being told his bond would be revoked, he lashed out.
The McLean County Sheriffs office said Icard stabbed himself in the stomach with a folding knife that had a 3-inch blade. Icard was transported to a local hospital. Officers are trying to figure out how the knife got into the courthouse.
