The Best Ways to Defend against Illinois State Drug Trafficking Charges

One of the risks of using illegal drugs is that it is relatively common to also be charged with drug trafficking in addition to possession. Technically, trafficking can apply to any drug amount, but trafficking charges are typically associated with larger quantities.

 

Importantly, even if the drugs were intended for personal use, the type, amount, or weight of the controlled substances in question may lead law enforcement to believe that you are a drug trafficker and press charges [...]

Feds Arrest 13 Alleged Drug Traffickers in Chicago

Recently thirteen people were arrested on drug trafficking charges in the Chicago area. Federal agents conducted a two-year investigation on Chicago’s Northwest side and in western suburbs and discovered an operation that distributed fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine. Many transactions allegedly occurred, including one at an Aurora gas station.

 

Arrests like these are becoming more common as the federal government cracks down on drug trafficking. Federal, state, and local agencies are acting in cooperation to put a stop to drug [...]

Dozens of Chicago Gang Members Arrested for Trafficking Drugs

Are you a member of or affiliated with a gang? If you are, you should know that you could be arrested for criminal activities that can be linked to your gang.

 

This is particularly important to be aware of right now, because law enforcement is currently cracking down and making huge busts in our city. Just last month, approximately 50 gang members we charged with drug and weapons trafficking. This resulted from a two-year investigation that was carried out [...]

Springfield Man Sentenced to 32 Years for Drug Trafficking

Of all criminal offenses – state or federal – drug trafficking cases have some of the longest jail sentences.

 

Just ask Deauntee Q. Mosby. The 24-year old Springfield man recently pled guilty to participating in a conspiracy to distribute 100 grams of heroin. Earlier this month, he was sentenced to 32 years in federal prison without parole.

 

What Happened to Send Mosby to Prison for More Than Three Decades?

 

The story begins when Mosby was stopped by [...]

Drug Convictions Can Get You Deported

Over 300 arrests were made earlier this month after the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations concluded a month-long investigation in the Midwest of convicted illegal aliens. Offenders have been arrested in Missouri, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Kansas, and Indiana, but the state of Illinois holds more offenders than any other state involved.

 

In our state alone, 107 people were arrested for violent and drug-related crimes. 47 of the offenders resided in the Chicago area. The offenders [...]

How “Job Placement Fees” Can Equate to IL Involuntary Servitude

Involuntary Servitude

One of the great benefits of capitalism is that people are guaranteed pay for the work they do. The US has one of the most robust economies in the world, along with a high standard of living.

These factors combined make the US, and particularly large cities like Chicago, attractive to immigrants.

That said, because many migrant workers don’t have any resources in the US, they are vulnerable to exploitation.

Involuntary Servitude and Immigrants in Illinois

Involuntary servitude is the [...]

700k Illinois Cannabis Records to Be Expunged – Many Automatically

Drug Crimes | Marijuana

In 2019, Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker House signed several house bills that legalized the recreational use of marijuana and allowed the state to expunge certain individuals’ marijuana possession arrest and conviction records.

For now, we’re going to look at the ones that affected 20 ILCS 2630, the Criminal Identification Act, which concerns the expungement of arrest and conviction records. Some expungements were automatic.

So, how did that work?  What about the ones that weren’t automatic?  What does expunge mean, [...]
