Decision Date: 
September 28, 2012
District: 
1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co., 2d Div.
Justice: 
CONNORS
Holding: 
Affirmed in part and vacated in part.
Defendant, a parking enforcement officer for village, was convicted of theft and official misconduct, charged with taking and keeping cash in exchange for removing "Denver boots" from cars. Official misconduct charge and theft offenses were based on same act in violation of one-act, one-crime doctrine. Erroneous admission of computer records without proper foundation was harmless error, given overwhelming circumstantial evidence that Defendant intended to permanently deprive Village of money. (HARRIS and QUINN, concurring.)
