A man from St. Charles, Illinois, finds himself facing sex crimes charges after an incident at a Chicago hotel recently. The 46-year-old man was charged with sexual assault against a maid who was working at the hotel. He could face serious consequences if he is convicted in the case.
The Multi-County Narcotics Enforcement Group recently carried out a series of raids at several locations in central Illinois. Authorities believe that the designer drug MDMA has been making a comeback, and that belief was bolstered when sizeable quantities of the drug were seized last week. Also found were significant quantities of marijuana and cocaine, along with more than $13,000 in cash.
Weapons crimes can bear repercussions up to and including extended prison time. If the charges involve a felony count, a convicted person can face consequences that will last even after they are released from prison. These can affect opportunities for work and housing, as well as other aspects of life like financial credit. A strong criminal defense and understanding the applicable laws is important when facing serious criminal charges.
Many Chicago residents are aware that Illinois has cracked down more and more on drunk driving in recent years. In fact, Mothers Against Drunk Driving recently decided to give our state five stars for taking significant measures to prevent drunk driving car accidents. This is the group’s highest rating. This very high praise from MADD should be a reminder to Chicago area residents that lawmakers and police are very serious about fighting drunk driving. As a result of this, DUI charges are prosecuted very seriously in Illinois and the penalties can be severe.
