November 01, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A Cook County prosecutor has resigned after admitting that he perpetrated an anthrax hoax on a co-worker.

James Vasselli, 27, assigned to downtown Traffic Court, admitted that he placed an envelope containing sugar on the desk of fellow prosecutor Adam Weber. The envelope bore the return address of a person Weber was prosecuting.

Firefighters and a hazardous-materials team were sent to the Traffic Division's offices.
