The drunk driver that crashed into and killed Bobby Cann, Ryne Sanhamel, was scheduled to appear in court this morning at 26th and California.  I recall that CPD was seeking "court advocates" to appear.  Did anyone attend?  Any idea what happened?

Hello all,

Sorry for the delayed response, I was off the social media train for the weekend. Looks like things have been pretty well covered here though. As Duppie said:

The next date will be:



9:30 a.m.

Cook County Courthouse

Branch 66

Room 101

26th and California


This will be an Arraignment, This is the one in which a judge will be assigned and a large visible presence of Bobby’s supporters will make a strong first impression.

If you have not been trained as an advocate you may still appear as a member of the public.


Please note that the security line at that time of the morning is very backed up so it’s recommended that you show up by 9:00 a.m. so that we can all be rallied up by 9:30. I would also go ahead and schedule the better part of your morning off as there may very well be delays.

As has been mentioned, the community policing office has made it a stipulation of court advocates that they are not to discuss any details of what transpires at a court hearing they attend. This is out of respect for the family of the victim. Even the most seemingly innocuous piece of information can have potentially destructive and hurtful consequences so it's just best to err on the side of caution.

We'll be hosting a second training for courtroom advocates on either the 30 or 31st at the 18th District headquarters. If you are interested in participating please go to this doodle calendar schedule and indicate your preference (choose both if you have no preference).

I'll repost all this in this thread:
