SKOKIE-JULY 10, 2013 COURT GRANTS DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO SUPPRESS EVIDENCE-CHARGES DROPPED

A Cook Count Judge granted a motion to supress evidence forcing prosecutors to abandon their charges of Felony Aggravated Driving on a Suspended License. A Chicago Police Officer claimed she executed a traffic stop because she saw the defendant driving without a seatbelt and subsequently learned that his license was revoked due to DUI convictions. Cross examination by the defendant's attorneys, Erickson & Oppenheimer, revealed that at the time of the stop, the plain clothes officer was driving an unmarked squad and saw the defendant emerge from a "known drug house" in "a high narcotics area." The judge found that the officer lacked cause to make the traffic stop. Prosecutors asked the judge to dismiss all charges shortly after the judge threw out the evidence.
