Chicago JD Jackass to Be Prosecuted

Over the weekend, BlackFive stirred up quite a reaction to the story about a Chicago attorney who 'keyed' the car of a Marine sergeant who was on his way to Iraq.

At first, it seemed that the Chicago/Illinois authorities were not very interested in the case--and that the attorney was going to walk away.

Then the blogstorm...

Now the rest of the story:

Sgt McNulty was called forward by the State's Attorney in order to discuss the case. I am not sure what transpired behind the closed doors, however, I overheard the State's Attorney expressing her intent to prosecute this guy to the fullest extent. It seems as if BlackFive is the sole catalyst to this story getting out and I am sure Sgt McNulty has probably heard the effect of yours and other blogs from the results of today's proceedings to include several Marines and civilians who showed up in his support.

Jay R Grodner was called before court and in his absence, the Judge issued a warrant for his arrest effective immediately. Sgt McNulty was departing the court when Grodner rolled in to the courtroom more pathetic than anyone I had ever seen. The Judge had questioned him on his tardiness and he explained that traffic had been busy and he 'made a wrong turn'. The Judge chastised him for his tardiness, pathetic excuses, and that he was lucky the warrant had not been executed prior to his arrival.

We'll see what happens next.
