A press release from the office of attorney Tom Popovich concerning the dismissal of disorderly conduct charges against Pamela Dvonch:
On May 29, 2013, the Honorable Judge Joel Berg of the McHenry County Circuit Court dismissed the criminal charge against Pamela Dvonch.
As previously reported in both the Northwest Herald and the Chicago Tribune, Ms. Dvonch had been charged by the Johnsburg Police Department with Disorderly Conduct for allegedly sending profane letters to various individuals associated with her former employer, St. John’s School in Johnsburg, Illinois.
Ms. Dvonch adamantly denied that she had done anything wrong, and her attorneys filed a Motion to Dismiss the charge at her first court appearance back on May 1, 2013.
The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office filed a written response opposing the dismissal, and oral argument was heard on the motion on May 29th by Judge Berg.
Judge Berg granted the defense motion, and dismissed the criminal charge against Ms. Dvonch.
Attached hereto is a copy of the order entered by Judge Berg dismissing the criminal charge against Ms. Dvonch.
Mrs. Dvonch was represented by Tom and Kim Popovich, whose three children have attended St. John’s School for over five years.
Mr. and Mrs. Popovich represented Mrs. Dvonch for free.
“We believed Mrs. Dvonch from the very beginning that she had not committed any crime, and that it was wrong for the Johnsburg Police Department to have ever charged her at all.
“We were confident that once we were able to get in front of a judge and tell her side of the story, that Mrs. Dvonch would be fully vindicated.
“And that is exactly what happened in court today.
“Mrs. Dvonch is not a criminal, and the only crime committed here was when the Johnsburg Police Department completely ignored both the evidence and the law and arrested her”, said Mr. Popovich.
