Chicagoland Criminal Defense Attorneys is a law firm with experienced trial lawyers with an eye towards protecting human rights. The law firm has dedicated its time and resources to providing criminal defense attorney services in Chicago and the surrounding areas with cases in court. Recently, the law firm, has released crucial information about home confinement or electronic monitoring in cook county.

According to the website, “Often times when a defendant in a criminal case is released on bond by the Cook County Sheriff he is placed on Electronic Monitoring (EM). EM is essentially home confinement. A defendant is issued an ankle bracelet and the Cook County Sheriff monitors the movements of the defendant 24 hours a day. EM can present additional hardships to the accused during the pendency of a criminal case. The Cook County Sheriff must grant a defendant on EM the right to leave his home for work, medical appointments, legal consultations and even funerals or other family events.”

The law firm further explained what a criminal defense attorney in Chicago can do for a client if they are on electronic monitoring, “If a criminal defendant works in a single location then the Cook County Sheriff will require a letter from a supervisor indicating what hours the defendant works. If the accused must travel for work or works a job with ever changing locations, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office must be notified 24-48 hours in advance in order to grant a defendant permission to travel to jobsites. Often times, the Cook County Sheriff will request a Court Order from the Judge before allowing the accused to too much freedom for work related travel. Furthermore, a criminal defendant who needs to meet with his attorney must be given permission to do so. An attorney can send a request to the Cook County Sheriff detailing the time and location of the meeting. Generally, the Cook County Sheriff will honor those requests if they are given adequate notice. While EM is generally considered a better alternative to sitting in the Cook County Jail during the disposition of a criminal matter, it does present significant hurdles. However, most of these hurdles can be overcome with the aid of a knowledgeable attorney.”
