Today we announced that our office will not oppose post-conviction petitions for 8 individuals, clearing the way for their murder convictions to be vacated and the criminal cases to be dismissed as part of our office's ongoing review of misconduct allegations involving former Chicago Police Detective Reynaldo Guevara.

The office’s long-term investigation was initiated in 2019 and several additional cases involving Guevara’s alleged police misconduct are expected to be resolved with similar court action in the upcoming weeks.

We acted on our obligation as seekers of justice and took measured and necessary steps to right the wrongs of the past. Since 2017, our office has vacated 229 wrongful convictions. As prosecutors, our job is to pursue justice and ensure public safety.

Even when almost no movement was happening on cases for the first year of the pandemic, CCSAO prosecutors kept working on their cases - weighing plea deals and preparing for trials.
We were ready.
This week members of the Special Prosecutions Public Corruption and Financial Crimes Unit with Cook County Regional Organized Crime Task Force sponsored a meal and served patrons of the Uptown Cafe. It’s always a pleasure to serve and be among community members.
Throughout the month, the Community Justice Centers collected donations for Veterans Treatment Court graduates. Today, staff dropped off bags filled with toiletries, underwear, and office supplies to Judge Hooks’ courtroom.
The Community Justice Centers are hosting a Resource Drive for Veterans from November 15 to December 6. All donations will go to the Veteran's Treatment Court. Collection boxes are available at each court house during business hours.
This Veteran’s Day, we honor Veterans who not only served our country but continue their public service at the CCSAO. In particular, Colonel William “Bill” Kelly, who recently passed away after serving as an Assistant State’s Attorney for 27 years.
Serving a cause looks different for everyone. At the CCSAO, we are committed to serving every resident of Cook County and ensuring we live in safe, thriving communities.
Happy birthday to Hatty, the CCSAO facility dog!
Throughout CCSAO staff have been joining advocates and criminal justice partners to increase awareness in the fight to end domestic violence. For resources and information on domestic violence visit: https://bit.ly/ccsaodv
TONIGHT: Hear from CCSAO Chief Data Officer and others experts on the importance of using data-driven ideas to bring change in the criminal justice system.
Please join us, Ascend Justice, Family Rescue, Sarah's Inn, and other advocates tomorrow at the Domestic Violence Courthouse for a short walk followed by a resource fair with information for survivors of domestic violence and abuse.
The CCSAO actively works to ensure that folks with shared experiences represent the entirety of our county. We are making great strides towards the office looking like the communities we serve.
Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month is not only about honoring the culture but also about highlighting the contributions that members have made in our office and our communities.
