Attorney Chuck Bretz and our longtime client achieved a not guilty verdict in court following a bench trial. The police executed a search warrant and found our client in possession of heroin along with a digital scale and pieces of foil. After a bench trial, the defendant was found not guilty of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Bretz later stated that "The State, in trying to combat the heroin crisis in Will County, takes a zero tolerance policy on these types of charges. We have to take an equally aggressive stance to fight for clients who are overcharged and in need of treatment, not prison."
