No Probable Cause at Preliminary Hearing For UUW
By: James G. Dimeas | May 29, 2013 | Recent Victories |
My client was facing three years in prison because of his extensive felony background. He was stopped by the police while walking down the street, The police claimed that he was carrying a gun. He was arrested and charged with UUW By a Felon. I appeared at the Preliminary Hearing for him at the Cook County Branch Courthouse at Grand and Central. The police officer had not found the gun on my client. I had the police officer admit that he never saw the gun on my client and could not be sure that it was on his person. After my aggressive cross examination of the police officer, the Court found no probable cause and dismissed the UUW By a Felon charges against my client and he was released from jail..
