On November 1, 2016, the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals vacated a district court’s sentence due to the absence of a jury finding on a necessary fact, remanding the case for resentencing. Michelle Jacobs and Vanessa Eisenmann represented the defendant on appeal, and Jacobs presented oral argument in May.
This is Jacobs’s eighth criminal defense victory in the Seventh Circuit since the firm opened in 2013.
