Appellate Court of Illinois, First District, Third Division.

April 12, 2000.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Kenneth N. Flaxman, Chicago, for Appellant.

Richard A. Devine, State's Attorney of Cook County, Chicago (Renee Goldfarb, James E. Fitzgerald, and Sari London, of counsel), for Appellee.

Justice WOLFSON delivered the opinion of the court:
