When Arrest Stats Go Up, So Does the Need for Criminal Defense

In a vicious circle of responding to statistics, the mayor of Chicago has recently responded to statistics noting the high level of violence in the city with an increased police presence in areas where there tends to be more trouble. This increased patrol has led to an increase in arrests for violent crimes, which means that the statistics related to the number of violent crimes in the city will likewise increase. As this statistical cat-and-mouse charade plays out, there is also, understandably, an increase in the number of individuals who need the services of a criminal defense law firm.

 

With Chicago Police targeting areas of the city more ardently, traffic stops, monitoring of city transit, and patrolling of neighborhoods has increased. Also on the rise are the number of arrests in those areas. However, when statistics surrounding the number of arrests made increases, invariably so do the number of charges that are eventually dropped because there is not enough evidence for the D.A.’s office to proceed. In other words, if arrests in Chicago are on the rise, then the number of innocent people arrested will rise, too. And if those numbers go up, the number of those in need of a law firm that can successfully build a defense against erroneous criminal charges also increases.

 

If an encounter with Chicago Police has resulted in your being charged with a crime, you need the services of a Chicago criminal defense law firm to assist you in preserving your reputation and your good name.

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
