Victory!!!!! (Kinda)

The Illinois Second District Appellate Court has overturned the $100 trauma center fee that was assessed to Ernesto Valle of Aurora following his conviction for murder. Unfortunately for Mr. Valle, the Appellate Court upheld his murder conviction.

The trauma center fee applies to people receiving orders of supervision for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, people convicted of certain weapons offenses and people convicted of certain drug offenses — but not murderers. The appellate prosecutors admitted the fee was assessed in error.
