Criminal Lawyers' Court Call: 03/18/2013

On Monday, March 18, 2013, Raymond G. Wigell and Huma Rashid were in the Cook County Courthouse on 26th and California to argue a motion in a felony sex case.

The client is charged in a multi-count indictment and is currently in custody. The charges are as follow:

  • Ten (10) counts of Aggravated criminal Sexual Assault - 720 ILCS 5/11-1.30(a)(2) and 720 ILCS 5/11-1/30(a)(4).
  • Three (3) counts of Aggravated Kidnapping - 720 ILCS 5/10-2(a)(3) 
  • Twenty (20) counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse - 720 ILCS 5/11-1.60(a)(6) and 720 ILCS 5/11-1.60(a)(2) 
  • One (1) count of Robbery - 720 ILCS 5/18-1(a) 
  • One (1) count of Unlawful Restraint - 720 ILCS 5/10-3(a)
Huma Rashid argued a motion to keep the client housed in the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center past his seventeenth birthday. She aggressively presented mitigation in favor of her client's position while the State argued that he be transferred to the Cook County Detention Center.

The Honorable Judge denied the motion. The case was continued for another status date at which the State will have another chance to tender additional discovery.
