If you make something less expensive, you will see more of it. In this article, CWB Chicago looks at Cook County’s continuing efforts to make gun crime less expensive.
Rap star Herbert “G Herbo” Wright reached a plea deal with prosecutors who accused him of having a handgun in a limo near State and Roosevelt in February 2018. Two other men in the vehicle were also charged with having guns.
Wright and prosecutors struck a deal in which the rapper pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor carrying a firearm while prosecutors dropped four felony gun charges. Judge Matthew Coughlan sentenced him to two years probation, nine days time served, and levied a fine of $494.
Other incidents are handled in a similar fashion, and they are covered in the article linked at the top of this post.
