Residents of the 10th Illinois House District have a new representative in Springfield as Eddie Winters was sworn in Sunday to fill the post.

Winters is a Chicago Police officer who was appointed to fill the vacancy left by the former representative Derrick Smith.

The legislature expelled Smith last month.

Smith was accused of accepting a bribe to help a fictitious day care operator get a state grant.
