People v. KS – Not Guilty
Mr. KS was charged with aggravated battery to 2 Chicago Police officers
and with resisting arrest. 3 Chicago Police Officers, that had history
with KS, claimed that they saw KS sitting in a car on his neighbor’s
driveway. The officers claimed they smelled burned marijuana, so they
stopped to investigate. The officers claim that as soon as they walked
up to the car, KS ran out of the driver’s seat towards his house.
2 officers chased him. One officer claimed that KS slammed the front door
on his right hand, and then a struggle ensued. The officers claimed that
KS punched and kicked them.
At trial, however, Mr. Pissetzky exposed the officers’ lies. KS was
on Electronic Monitoring and could not leave his house. It would have
been impossible for KS to seat in a car on his neighbor’s driveway
without violating EM. Also, the officer claimed that KS slammed the door
on the officer’s right hand. But when facing the door, it swing
open to the right and it would have made it impossible to slam on the
officer’s right hand. Mr. Pissetzky also impeached the officers’
testimony by bringing many inconsistencies between their testimony and
the police reports.
At the end of the trial, Mr. KS was found NOT GUILTY of all charges.
