A judge has granted a vacation request by Kane County's coroner who is facing felony misconduct charges.

Chuck West was indicted last week of official misconduct. He is accused of taking a television from a dead man's home in Carpentersville in 2007.

West has denied any wrongdoing and says he intends to stay in office.

West had to go to court Thursday morning to get permission to take a trip to Florida.
