People v. J.G.

Client charged with 2 ordinance violations (possession of cannabis) and a traffic citation alleging unlawful use of a cell phone while driving. Client was recently placed on Court Supervision in Lake County for a cannabis-related charge. After negotiations with the Village Prosecutor, Mr. LaScola managed to get 1 of the ordinance violations dismissed and the cell phone violation dismissed as well. On the sole remaining ordinance violation, Mr. LaScola negotiated a “deferred prosecution” requiring that only 8 hrs of community service be performed within the next 30 days – and the Village will agree to dismiss that violation as well upon proof being brought back to court on the return date. On 5/30/14 Community Service was completed and all charges were DISMISSED!!!
