Felony criminal charges are successfully resolved for pro bono client

Client(s) Client W

Jones Day attorneys Ted Chung, Jon Linas, and Clark Brinker provided pro bono representation to a client charged with six felonies arising out of an allegation that he and others participated in a physical attack and robbery of, and theft from, two minors in a South Side neighborhood. Our attorneys conducted extensive investigation to develop a credible misidentification and alibi defense, eventually persuading prosecutors to drop all charges except for one robbery charge in exchange for our client's agreement to be sentenced to a Cook County Boot Camp program (four months in the boot camp program followed by eight months of supervised release).
