Kane County Sting Nabs Drivers Leaving Court

In an elaborate sting in Kane County, motorists driving on suspended or revoked licenses were nabbed by police as they were leaving the Kane County courthouse in St. Charles. Police and prosecutors identified 38 defendants who were scheduled to appear in court today and had their licenses either suspended or revoked. Then, using a combination of undercover officers and spotters stationed on surrounding office buildings, officials followed the drivers as they drove into the parking lot and entered the courthouse. Officials would then follow them as they exited the courthouse and then called officers, mostly Illinois State Police, who would curb the vehicle and arrest the offenders.

Such stings frequently take place in Cook County. A few months ago, one of our attorneys appeared in the Markham courthouse for a client charged with Driving on a Suspended License. The attorney worked out a plea agreement for the client and as the attorney was leaving the Markham Courthouse, he saw that his client had been pulled over by a Cook County Sheriff's Deputy as he was driving out of the parking lot of the courthouse.
