A New Breed of Drug Crimes

In the war on drugs, law enforcement officials have a new enemy to target: synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs, also known as K2 or bath salts have come under increased scrutiny in the area, and law enforcement has indicated their intent to get such drugs off the streets by whatever legal means are available. As a result of this concentrated effort, many area residents will find themselves in need of a criminal defense attorney. For example, two Chicago area convenience store owners were recently charged with multiple offenses in connection with the sale of synthetic drugs.

 

The efforts of local law enforcement also resulted in other stores where items were seized surrendering those items and agreeing to sign onto a community protection agreement. However, in their zeal to rid the Chicago area of synthetic drugs, police will no doubt apprehend some people who are actually innocent of any criminal activity. That is where the efforts of a qualified and knowledgeable attorney can be extremely beneficial. An expert defense attorney can help to uphold the rights of those who have been falsely accused of selling or attempting to sell synthetic drugs.

Are Technical Probation Violations in IL on Hold Right Now?

COVID-19 | Probation Violations

While probation offices across Illinois are closed or operating with fewer employees due to COVID-19, there may be a decrease in technical probation violations resulting in any real punishments.

For many years, criminal justice researchers have gathered a lot of data about whether or not punishments for non-criminal probation violations are helpful to anyone. With many probation offices changing the way they do things during the COVID-19 pandemic, that question is being asked again.

So what is the difference between

Illinois Prisoners Have Rights — Are They Being Violated?

Prisoners Rights | Early Release | Criminal Defense

Regardless of how a person winds up in prison, all prisoners’ rights are the same. This is true even during the current pandemic or any other natural disaster for that matter.

One of those rights is personal safety. To help protect that right and to prevent further COVID-19 infections in the state prison system, certain inmates are being released early.

The concerted effort, however, has since given way to public questions about precisely who has been released and whether or
