A judge for the Cook County Circuit Court has reported that a lawyer go to trial for bringing a mobile phone into an interrogation room in Chicago. The lawyer, Sladjana Vuckovic, allowed her client to use the mobile phone, making a few different calls during an interrogation. Her client is currently suspected of killing a cop in Chicago, along with one other person.

The Judge, Evelyn Clay, decided against the dismissal of the charges. The defense was hoping to have the charges dismissed, saying that the law is vague when it comes to the specific arrest. However, Clay assured to the courtroom that the law is quite clear and that even though other attorneys have brought cellular phones into the interrogation room before, that has nothing to do with this particular case and is simply irrelevant.


Vuckoic has been charged with a felony since she brought her cellular phone into an interrogation in which she would be meeting up with her client, a man who was the suspect for the slaying of a Chicago police officer, Michael Fisk, along with the slaying of another man as well.

At the time, the suspect, whose name is Timothy Herring, was in the interrogation to be questioned about the slaying. Vuckovic had met with him in the Calumet Area headquarters on two separate occasions. The second time she met with the man, she let him use a cellular phone to make different phone calls and was later charged with a felony for doing this.

Vuckovic, along with the attorney that is representing her, have argued that the law was unclear and that she was not aware that a cellular device was not permitted into the interrogation room. They also argued that most attorney bring cellular phones with them when they go into interrogation rooms. They even tried to argue that she is only being targeted by police because she is defending a man who is a suspect in the slaying of one of their own, a police officer.
