Armed Habitual Criminal
26th & California, Chicago
The Chicago Police claimed to have received a call that our client was not supposed to be in the area and that he had a gun in his vehicle. The officers also claimed that they knew that our client was involved in a shooting and was known to carry a gun. The officers then detained our client and conducted a protective pat-down search. During the search they found a .45 caliber hand gun. At a motion to suppress, I proved that the officer illegally search our client and violated his 4th Amendment rights. The judge agreed and thew out the evidence. Case Dismissed.
