My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
Is there a way for me to defend this? Here is what happened.
I lost BIG in casino. Got mad. Toppled the chair I was sitting while I walk away from the CHEATING roulette machine. A security approached me, told him to shut up! I knew he will take me away so decided to leave but before i left, I went to the bathroom. The bathroom that's outside the casino floor.
When I went out, state trooper approached me. I proceeded to ignore and just leave. Bear in mind I am ALREADY out of the casino floor. I AM ALREADY LEAVING!!! Because I know they will ask me to leave anyway.
I was blinded by rage coz I LOST A LOT OF MY MONEY. The state trooper proceeded to block my way. I was mad I push him away. He and the other guy then proceeded to cuff me harshly. I actually has bruise from my handcuffs.
I was already leaving the premises why do they have to block my way? For what?!
Long story short I was slapped with Disorderly conduct state wide. Taken to jail, mugshot, print, etc. I paid $120 so I did not stay in jail. Have a court date next month. Do you think a lawyer can get me out of this?
If not I plan to just use the public defender. Hopefully this will be dismissed. I dont know how this casino people can sleep KNOWING I lost BIG and still have the nerve to charge me. Wow.
