State of Illinois v. SS

SS was charged with 2 counts of aggravated battery against a police officer. SS was at the NATO protest that took place in downtown Chicago. In the midst of the raucous, an altercation took place between SS and a lieutenant of the Chicago Police Department. SS was arrested and charged with a class 2 felony, facing 3 to 7 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. SS was represented by attorneys Sami Azhari and Aaron Goldstein at trial. After a thorough preparation of all the state’s evidence, a jury was selected in what would be a 4 day jury trial.
After 4 hours of deliberations, the jury found SS NOT GUILTY of all charges. He walked out of the courtroom a free man.
