Chicago- July 29, 2013 1st Degree Murder Charges Dismissed.

After four years of hard fought litigation, Erickson & Oppenheimer secured the dismissal of 1st Degree Murder charges against client Defendant Tremaine Winters at 26th & California on Monday. Prosecutors dismissed the charges in exchange for a plea of guilty involuntary manslaughter. 1st Degree Murder carries a mandatory minimum of 20 years of which 100% must be actually served. Pursuant to an agreement, Mr. Winters will be released from custody in approximately 18 months on a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter.

This marks the 4th consecutive 1st Degree Murder win for Erickson & Oppenheimer. The last 3 murder juries returned a verdict of not guilty for E&O.
