Arrests for Drug Crimes Will Continue As Chicago Police Target Areas of the City

The Chicago Police Department is renewing its efforts to target drug operations across the city. As a result, arrests will continue to go up for crimes ranging from trafficking charges to weapons violations to gang-related offenses. As the narcotics division continues to target and then investigate various areas in the city, those arrested will want to enlist the assistance of an aggressive and experienced Chicago drug crimes attorney.

 

Such an approach also means a risk that individuals who are not involved in any drug crimes or other illegal activity could be arrested simply because of their presence in an area of Chicago that is being targeted by law enforcement. There is also a risk that the covert efforts of narcotics agents to identify those involved in drug and other crimes will create scenarios in which the legal rights of those subsequently charged were violated in some way. Obviously, the effort to eradicate drug crimes from the Chicago area, however well-intentioned, can never be used as a justification for the conviction of innocent parties or for the violation of an individual’s Constitutional rights.

 

If the attempt by Chicago Police to target drug crimes has resulted in your arrest, contact attorney Andrew M. Weisberg who will diligently work to build the strongest defense of your case that is possible. Whether Mr. Weisberg gets charges dropped altogether, works for a reduced sentence, or defends your case in a court trial, he will vigorously defend and protect your freedom, your reputation, and your future. Contact Attorney Weisberg’s office today.

 

If you have been arrested in Chicago, no matter how straightforward or complex your drug charge, Andrew M. Weisberg is a Chicago drug crimes attorney known for tough, aggressive defense. A former felony prosecutor, Attorney Weisberg has extensive experience handling all types of criminal cases, from sex offenses and violent crimes to theft-related crimes and traffic violations.

How Aggravating Factors Can Affect Your IL Sentence

Aggravating Factors

Sometimes after a crime takes place, the perpetrator finds themselves in more serious trouble than they initially expected. Some charges contain what we call aggravating factors – and these factors can significantly worsen the penalties for a crime.

Recently, a man on a Chicago train in the Cermak Road area was stabbed in the face. Police don’t know what motivated the attack yet, but any discovered motivations could be considered aggravating factors in the crime. These could increase the sentencing

IL Domestic Violence Prosecutions Down, But You Can Still Be Charged

Domestic Assault | Domestic Battery | Domestic Violence

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every single aspect of our lives, including how we get along with people in our own household.

According to the Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline, tensions between people quarantined together at home have resulted in more calls to the hotline in 2020. In fact, they report a 16 percent increase in the overall calls compared to the same time in the previous year.
