The owners of the E-2 Nightclub could face jail time after all.

The Illinois supreme court overturned a ruling that dismissed guilty verdicts against the owners.

A stampede killed 21 people at the club on South Michigan Ave in 2003.

Owners Dwain Kyles and Calvin Hollins Jr were convicted of indirect criminal contempt for disobeying a court order to close the second floor, and sentenced to two years in prison.

An appeals court threw out the convictions.

Now the high court has reversed that ruling and sent the case back to the appeals court.
