Decision Date: 
October 31, 2012
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Kane Co.
Justice: 
McLAREN
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Defendant was convicted, after jury trial, of violating order of protection, for having sent text messages to his estranged wife on matters such as family vacation and concert tickets, in violation of explicit terms of order of protection. Court properly refused to give non-IPI instruction which indicated that he could be found guilty of violating OP only if jury found that he acted with knowledge and intent. IPI instructions given (Nos. 11.77 and 11.78) correctly state the law, and supplied jury with mental state necessary to find violation of OP. (ZENOFF and SCHOSTOK, concurring.)
