SKOKIE-JULY 17, 2013: DEFENDANT GETS PROBATION IN DUI/RECKLESS HOMICIDE CASE.

After an emotional and often contentious sentencing hearing, Erickson & Oppenheimer, Ltd. convinced a Cook County judge to use a rare exception to the mandatory prison sentence in DUI cases involving a death and impose a sentence of probation.

“This was miracle work,” said a Chicago DUI expert. “I am aware of only one other time in the history of Illionois jurisprudence that a judge found the requisite “extraordinary circumstances” that the law mandates before a judge can by-pass a mandatory sentence of a term in prison.”
