Not Pleaing Guilty
Case Number : 35-2021-MM-003308-AXXX-XX
County : Lake

When plea negations failed with the State, Attorney Leroy Costner set the case for trial. The client qualified for diversion, but the State would not offer it. As the trial date approached, the State offered diversion, but they were going to require Client to plea guilty first. This is something that we knew client would refuse and countered with the same offer without the admission of guilt. The State refused again. The Friday before trial the State asked why the client would not admit guilt. Attorney Leroy Costner explained that his client just graduated from college with a degree in criminal justice. That her employment required her to have a clean criminal history and to have never admitted guilt to a criminal case, even if it was later dismissed. At that point the State agreed to dismiss the case. Once the case was dropped, the Client was able to secure the new job they had gone to school for. Additionally, Attorney Zahra Umansky expunged Client’s record too so that she can begin her career with a clean slate.

Date Resolved : February 2023

Introducing Contraband
County : Lake

Client was a prison volunteer at Lake Correctional and would send emails (via JPay, which is “authorized” for anyone EXCEPT a volunteer). Thus, he’s now been accused of introducing “contraband”. Statute does say written communication is contraband “Unless through authorized channels.” So issue is, this is “authorized” and if it isn’t (because it violates the administrative rule but not the statute) it’s not a crime. Called the Inspector General in Topeka and cancelled the client’s meeting tomorrow. Inspector said that he was meeting only because he has to under federal law (as they get a grant) and that the case was really about a sexual battery claim (client is supposed to be having sex with another inmate and has a “lookout”.) The Inspector says he had to give the accused a chance to respond under federal grant requirements before closing it. As for written emails, yes, it violates the statute (and they’re banning him administratively) but promise that there will be no criminal charge, because state doesn’t think the case and the emails were utterly innocuous about the bible. Case was dismissed by the State.

Not Pleaing Guilty
Case Number : 35-2021-MM-003308-AXXX-XX
County : Lake

When plea negations failed with the State, Attorney Leroy Costner set the case for trial. The client qualified for diversion, but the State would not offer it. As the trial date approached, the State offered diversion, but they were going to require Client to plea guilty first. This is something that we knew client would refuse and countered with the same offer without the admission of guilt. The State refused again. The Friday before trial the State asked why the client would not admit guilt. Attorney Leroy Costner explained that his client just graduated from college with a degree in criminal justice. That her employment required her to have a clean criminal history and to have never admitted guilt to a criminal case, even if it was later dismissed. At that point the State agreed to dismiss the case. Once the case was dropped, the Client was able to secure the new job they had gone to school for. Additionally, Attorney Zahra Umansky expunged Client’s record too so that she can begin her career with a clean slate.

Introducing Contraband
County : Lake

Client was a prison volunteer at Lake Correctional and would send emails (via JPay, which is “authorized” for anyone EXCEPT a volunteer). Thus, he’s now been accused of introducing “contraband”. Statute does say written communication is contraband “Unless through authorized channels.” So issue is, this is “authorized” and if it isn’t (because it violates the administrative rule but not the statute) it’s not a crime. Called the Inspector General in Topeka and cancelled the client’s meeting tomorrow. Inspector said that he was meeting only because he has to under federal law (as they get a grant) and that the case was really about a sexual battery claim (client is supposed to be having sex with another inmate and has a “lookout”.) The Inspector says he had to give the accused a chance to respond under federal grant requirements before closing it. As for written emails, yes, it violates the statute (and they’re banning him administratively) but promise that there will be no criminal charge, because state doesn’t think the case and the emails were utterly innocuous about the bible. Case was dismissed by the State.
