The Illinois Supreme Court has upheld the convictions of two men accused of stealing office equipment from a Joliet, Ill., law firm. The ruling allows prosecutors to charge theft suspects under multiple sections of the state criminal code without fear that verdicts will be overturned as legally inconsistent.
The Supreme Court’s decision came in the cases of People v. Anthony Rose and People v. Charles Price. The defendants were spotted by Joliet police shortly after midnight Dec. 1, 2002, with a shopping cart containing a laptop computer, radio, two briefcases, a humidor and a combination TV/VCR.
