Case Conclusion Date: October 26, 2017
Practice Area: Felony Damage to Property/Drug Possession
Outcome: Felony Property Damage Reduced to Misdemeanor/Drug Possession Case Dismissed
Description: 26th & California Avenues Chicago (Case #17CR6673 17CR6675)
My client allegedly broke into a private car repair business parking lot by cutting the fence and took back his vehicle damaging two other vehicles in the process. Several weeks later his vehicle was stopped by the Chicago Police Department and he was arrested while in possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms which tested positive as a controlled substance. The prosecution reduced the Felony Criminal Damage to Property to a misdemeanor and my client paid $1 000 in restitution (representing two $500.00 insurance deductibles for the damaged vehicles) and was ordered to pay $322.00 in fines and costs. He was sentenced to one year of misdemeanor probation. In addition, the Felony Drug Possession charge was dismissed against him with prejudice.
