Case Conclusion Date:January 8, 2013
Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Outcome:Guilty on lesser included offenses resulting in less prison time
Description:We don't "win" every case but this client was charged with multiple counts: aggravated vehicular hijacking, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated unlawful restraint. These charges carried a sentence of 22 to 45 years upon conviction. Took the case to trial and the judge found my client NOT GUILTY on the unlawful use of a weapon which reduced the sentencing range down to 6 to 30 years, saving my client numerous years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Client was ecstatic regarding the result and his sentence is day for day so he will be back home with his family soon!
