- An off-duty Cook County prosecutor allegedly bit a man in the leg during a scuffle outside a lingerie shop over the weekend, and she was charged with misdemeanor battery and trespassing, authorities said Monday.
Sarah Naughton, 31, of Chicago, will be placed on administrative duty and won’t be allowed to litigate while her case is pending, said Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.
Naughton and Bradley Gould, 31, were in Taboo Tabou at 854 W. Belmont at 7:25 p.m. Saturday, police said. Witnesses said they appeared intoxicated and were causing a disturbance, police said.
They were asked to leave and were on the sidewalk outside the store when Gould allegedly shoved the manager of the next-door store, the Blue Havana cigar lounge. Then, Naughton allegedly bit the Blue Havana manager in the leg, breaking the skin.
Didn't Anita approve "aggravating felony charges" against some cop or cops for a fight outside a bar, claiming that it was on the "public way" and therefore eligible for the higher charge? Granted, the broken skin on the manager's leg from the human bite is an aggravating factor also. Does anyone have any idea why Anita isn't following past practice as well as Illinois law?
Frank Main posted his Sun Times article almost 7 hours after we broke this story and Channel 2 was 12 hours behind. Maybe they could do some follow up as to the charging discrepancies - you know, like reporters might do.
