My client was charged with a Class IV Felony Unlawful Possession of Weapon.    I convinced the prosecutor to defer further prosecution against my client if he performed certain conditions.  In essence, the Felony charge will be dropped as long the defendant complies with an agreement to perform some community service, pay a fine, etc....

Getting a deferred prosecution in any criminal case is a key way to resolve criminal charges.  In this case, my client will avoid the possibility  of serving between 1 and 3 years in prison, will not have a felony on his record.

I represented a client who was charged with a Class A misdemeanor Leaving The Scene of a Property Damage Accident (Hit and Run).   In speaking to the prosecutor I pointed out the difficulty in proving the case beyond a reasonable doubt because my client did not know he struck the other car.    I convinced the prosecutor to amend the charge to a simple moving violation and my client paid a small fine.

When you are charged with a Hit and Run, you face up to one year in jail and fines of up to $2,500.00.  Be sure to protect yourself and speak with an experienced attorney who knows the required proof in cases such as this.

Under certain circumstances, some inmates can be released early by the Illinois Department of Corrections.  The prison gets to decide whether or not some inmates can be released after serving at least 60 days of their sentence.   This new law is really the resurrection of a previous program that allowed early release.    However, the previous early-release program did not require a minimum period of incarceration of at least 60 days.      Some inmates were being released within weeks or days of their initial period of incarceration.   The earlier law was stopped about three years ago because it was being abused.

The new law mandates that an inmate serve at least 60 days of the sentence.  After 60 days, the Illinois Department of Corrections may allow early release, but is required to look at several factors, such as the crime committed, previous history, etc...

Speeding in a school zone is a very serious ticket.  Fines can be high and a conviction is required.  I represented a client who receive a school zone ticket.  In examining the ticket and evaluating the facts, I convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the ticket.   The ticket was on a day which did not fall within the  legal definition of a "school day".  Further, the sign was improperly posted and did not have the necessary language that the law requires for a valid school zone to exist.

Dupage School Zone Tickets can be successfully defended.  Call Stephen Brundage, Attorney at Law (630) 260-9647 for any criminal or traffic arrest in DuPage, Kane, or Cook County.

I recently represented a client who was the respondent in a Petition for Order of Protection filed by his estranged wife.   I convinced the Judge to dismiss the DuPage County Petition for Order of Protection because of the lack of jurisdiction over my client because he was an out of state resident.
