Case Results

Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance
Two of our clients had their drug charges thrown out at a preliminary hearing after a Judge found no probable cause to search. Additionally, the Judge determined the lab procedures by the State Crime Lab inadmissible. All of the $3,000 bond money was returned to the client.

Aggravated Battery
A client was acquitted following trial when the Judge ruled the State failed to prove their case after the Officer was cross-examined. The client avoided a felony conviction, jail time and the loss of his job.

Attempted Murder
A client charged with Attempted Murder who faced a prison term of 20-60 years in IDOC was released after only serving 120 days in a downstate boot camp.

Breath Refusal Case Won
• A first offender was found not guilty following a bench trial even though the Officer testified that the defendant didn't pass any of the Field Sobriety Tests. Uniquely, the Officer also testified that our client had red, bloodshot eyes, strong odor of alcohol and slurred speech. The trial Judge ruled that although the defendant might have been under the influence of alcohol, the totality of the circumstances did not amount to a conviction.

DUI Case Reduced on Dispatch Tape Evidence -- Eight Tickets Thrown Out
As part of defense measures, the Illinois State Police Dispatch Tapes were subpoenaed to court for inspection. Following a detailed examination, it was determined that the State Trooper failed to follow proper arrest and test procedure guidelines. This 19 year old client had her license saved and the eight accompanying traffic tickets were dismissed.
