Investigation Creates Recent Victories in Illinois, Defense Attorney Robert Callahan Wins Cases. *the following are summaries and do not contain all relevant facts
September 2009 -Domestic Battery – Not Guilty
Oralia S. was charged with the offense of Domestic Battery. Her daughter alleged that Oralia had punched and kicked her during a family argument. Oralia’s daughter (L.S.) was shown to be lying during Cross-examination. L.S.’s testimony did not match the testimony of the other witnesses. One witness testified that L.S. was on the ground when Oralia struck her, while the other witness maintained that L.S. was standing during the altercation. The Judge found that the State did not overcome Oralia’s presumption of innocence, and found her Not Guilty of all charges.
July 2009 – Possession With Intent to Deliver Heroin, Class X Felony, 6 Year Non-probationable Mandatory Sentence – Case Dismissed
James C. was charged with Possession With Intent to Deliver Heroin, a Class X Felony with a mandatory 6 Year Sentence. We filed a Motion to Suppress Evidence, and set the case for a hearing on all relevant facts. Prior to the hearing, investigation revealed that the Chicago Police had improperly, illegally, and unconstitutionally stopped the car James C. was traveling in. During the Preliminary Hearing numerous inconsistencies were uncovered during cross examination of the arresting officer. The Police had basically stopped Mr. C. for no reason. They testified that James “was in a high narcotics area” and that he had made movements which looked like a “suspected narcotics transaction”. The Officer also testified that James made a “furtive movement” as the officers approached him. At the hearing on the Motion To Suppress Evidence we were able to demonstrate to the Judge that the stop of the car was unconstitutional, and that the arrest of James was improper. The Judge agreed with us and the Motion to Suppress Evidence was Granted. The case was then dismissed.
May 2009 – Domestic Battery
Nelson C. was charged with Domestic Battery in August of 2008. His ex-girlfriend and mother of his children alleged that he had punched her and grabbed her during a dispute about child visitation. Nelson has adamantly maintained his innocence since that time, and we took on his case because we believed him. At trial, numerous inconsistencies and outright lies were uncovered.The alleged (fake)injuries testified to at trial turned out to be completely different from the injuries reported to the police. Once again thorough investigation prior to trial carried the day. Finding of Not Guilty
April 2009 – Felony Unlawful Use of Weapons, Impersonating a Police Officer-No Probable Cause, Case Dismissed

February 2009 – Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance (Heroin)- No Probable Cause, Case Dismissed
Another case thrown out at Preliminary Hearing. Inconsistencies were pointed out in Police testimony, and the judge made a finding of No Probable Cause.
