Decision Date: 
May 8, 2013
District: 
1st Dist.
Division/County: 
Cook Co., 3d Div.
Justice: 
HYMAN
Holding: 
Affirmed as modified.
Court's misstatement that a cell phone, rather than a wallet, was taken from the victim, did not go to the crux of the defense, and did not result in the denial of his due process rights. Any error was not plain error as the evidence was not closely balanced and the error was not serious. Evidence was overwhelming and included Defendant's recorded confession and identification by two eyewitnesses. (STERBA and PIERCE, concurring.)
