Bob Cremo’s Early Release After 28 Days in Lake County Jail

The father of the alleged shooter in Highland Park was released early from jail on Wednesday. On November 16, he was sentenced to 60 days in prison.

He was released from the Lake County Jail early due to good behavior after serving 27 days.

On November 6, Robert Crimo Jr. entered a guilty plea to seven misdemeanor counts of reckless conduct. He was sentenced to two years of probation and sixty days in jail.

On seven felony counts of reckless conduct, he was scheduled to go on trial that day.

Lake County prosecutors wanted to show that he should have known his son posed a risk to the public when he applied for a Firearm Ownership Identification card.

The father of the accused Highland Park shooter has been released from jail after serving 27 days:

Since Robert Crimo III was only 19 years old, he required a parent’s signature on his application.

He also has to turn in his FOID card, give up any weapons he may have, and complete 100 hours of community service as part of his plea agreement. Additionally, Crimo Jr. committed to never again sponsor a juvenile for a FOID card.

When his murder case goes to trial in February, his son, the alleged gunman of the Highland Park procession, intends to represent himself.

Robert Crimo III abruptly fired his lawyers on Monday and accelerated his trial by a year by claiming the right to a quick trial. The current date of his trial is February 26, 2024.
