Criminal Defense Attorney in U.S. Federal & Illinois Courts

Chicago Police Officer’s Firing Leads to NOT GUILTY

PRESS RELEASE (Chicago).  On December 4, 2015, Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney Michael J. Petro won a trial in a Bridgeview court room.  Before trial, the Cook County State’s Attorneys’ Office was forced to admit that a key Chicago Police Officer witness was fired because the officer was convicted of a crime!  Despite this incredible change of circumstances, the Cook County State’s Attorneys’ Office presented the testimony of one Chicago Police Officer to try and convict Mr. Petro’s client .    On cross-examination of this officer, Mr. Petro was able to show that the officer, despite his valiant efforts,  was not telling the truth.  NOT GUILTY!  Congratulations KB!
