A 51 year old real estate attorney was sentenced to six years behind bars on charges of criminal sexual assault and criminal sexual abuse.
In 2012, a young woman charged the former lawyer with assaulting her at the West Chicago Lakeshore Hotel. She claims the incident left her both emotionally and mentally scarred. The accused faced 5 to 18 years in jail for his crime, which was an “unprovoked, unwarranted attack,” according to the judge. Prosecutors also argued that the former real estate attorney had covered his hands with Carmex lip balm after his arrest to potentially destroy DNA evidence. These actions all pointed to his guilt and lack of character, which the prosecution focused on heavily.
