Case Number: 
2013 IL App (4th) 120137
Decision Date: 
April 3, 2013
District: 
4th Dist
Division/County: 
Ford Co.
Justice: 
STEIGMANN
Holding: 
Affirmed in part and reversed in part; remanded with directions.
Defendant was convicted of criminal sexual assault. Jury could reasonably draw inferences that prosecutor argued: that Defendant was apologizing for his sexual misconduct with 15-year-old friend of his son, by making apologies to victim, her mother, and the police, and that such apologies were "evidence of a guilty man". Court is required to conduct a hearing into a defendant's financial resources as a precondition to ordering reimbursement for court-appointed counsel. (APPLETON and POPE, concurring.)
