Outcome: Amended to Petty Offenses
Description: People v. JG, Case No. 2019300203001 | My client was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over by Mount Prospect Police for possible cannabis consumption. My client became agitated after attempting to film the police conduct. He physically resisted being arrested and he attempted to batter an officer at the police station. He was charged with Obstructing a Peace Officer, 2 counts of Resisting a Peace Officer, and could have been charged with Assault. After mitigation was presented to the State, including my client’s illness, the charges were amended to a petty ordinance offense of failing to obey a peace officer in return for court supervision.
