Be A Court Advocate Next Week – Graffiti Hearing

Graffiti has recently been an issue in the 13th District. Here is your chance to help out by being a Court Advocate.  What does a Court Advocate do? You  come to court and stand up when the case is called. The judge sees that  the community is involve in the case. Then everyone sits back down. That is it. Sounds simple enough, but the presence of community members, neighbors, concerned citizens,  in the courtroom makes a bold statement.

On June 7, 2011 Ryan Sahlin was arrested and charged with numerous counts of Criminal Defacement to Property (Graffiti ). This occurred on Damen Ave from Grand to Division and several other building it the district. Please meet up with the Community Policing officer and others in our neighborhood interested in appearing as Court Advocates for this case, at 2400 W. Belmont Ave. on June 29 at 9:00 AM in Branch 42- Room 2. This is our way to  let the judge know how seriously we take this issue and that we care about our community.
