Case Conclusion Date: August 3, 2012
Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: All charges dismissed
Description: MKK was charged in Chicago with improper use of a motorcycle because of too many passengers. This led to multiple Class A misdemeanor criminal charges punishable by up to 364 days in jail. Those criminal charges included Driving While Suspended, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and finally, Possession of Cannabis. However, the officer was mistaken about one important detail. A dog is not a "passenger" under Illinois law, and we were able to achieve a dismissal of all charges.
