A CTA commuter accepted the diversion plan on Thursday. The commuter briefly became a popular hero when he illegally used a cell phone jammer to make his own silent car on the red line, which allowed him to avoid conviction.
Dennis Nicholl’s lawyer made national headlines after his arrest. He said the arrangement required his client to attend a consultation meeting. Nicholl, 63, declined to comment after leaving the court.
In a brief court hearing, the Cook County prosecutor stated that if he meets all the requirements for a certified public accountant, the misdemeanor against Nicholas a certified public accountant will be dismissed in late June. Transfer procedures.
Nichols’ lawyer, Charles Lauer, said his client was shocked by the propaganda of his arrest.
Raul said in court: “It’s like 20% thing, it’s a very bad thing, and 80% thing, yes, great-these people are also bothering me.” “I can tell. You, he doesn’t think he is a hero. He is just a cute boy who is troubled by others, so he has taken obvious improper behavior to (stop) him.”
Lauer said Nicole, a financial analyst at the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System University, was on leave after being arrested.
Raul said: “I think he was so scared that this happened, so he encountered a problem at work, so I don’t think it will happen again.” “He just wants to hide.”
The prosecutor initially charged Nicholas with a felony of illegally interfering with public services, but then reduced the charge to falsifying communication services. Raul said that prosecutors found that the initial charge was not applicable because the mobile phone operator was not a public utility. Raul said that when they sued Nicoll under state law involving public broadcasting, the situation would only escalate to a misdemeanor.
Lauer said before that Nicholl only wanted a little peace and quiet on the commute from his home in the north to work in the hospital. .
Pictures taken by other Nicholl commuters holding jamming devices on CTA trains have been circulating online for several months. The Chicago police had been notified a few months ago and obtained his photo.
A photo taken by a CTA passenger, consisting of suspects holding seemingly black electronic devices, and a secret “task team” composed of officers from the Police Department and Federal Communications Commission Loyola on the morning of March 8 6 o’clock is on the red line.
More than an hour later, an undercover agent saw Nicholl entering Loyola station and followed him on the red line train. According to the arrest report, the officer in plain clothes stood near Nicholas and immediately called his personal cell phone.
The police said that the police officer saw Nicoll take a black electronic device with multiple antennas from his pocket, and then pressed a button. The police said that the officer immediately lost his signal and the call was interrupted.
After the train stopped at the Granville platform, Nicholl was stopped by police officers. The police said he had a jamming device in his hand.
The work stoppage report stated that Nichols admitted to using jamming devices because “when people are riding in a CTA, he gets annoyed when they talk on their phones.”
This is not the first time Nicholl has been accused of mobile phone interference. According to court records, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges in June 2009. He was under judicial supervision for a year, and his equipment was confiscated and destroyed.
His lawyer said that the days of Nicole using cell phone jammers are over.
Raul said: “I don’t think we will receive any more letters from Mr. Nicoll.” “I hope people will not disturb him. He just doesn’t accept’L’.”
