   Attorneys for a former SIU Edwardsville student are asking the Illinois Supreme Court to uphold a lower court's decision to toss out their client's conviction of attempting to make a terroristic threat.  The filing on behalf of Olutosin Oduwole comes more than a month after he was ordered freed by a state appellate court.  

   Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is appealing the overthrown conviction on behalf of Madison County prosecutors.  

   Oduwole's attorneys now argue there's no compelling reason for the state's high court to hear the case, and their client's six-year ordeal constitutes an abuse of prosecutorial power and a waste of judicial resources.
