  1. The price of getting arrested

    Something Evanston should look at ….

    The Daily Herald reports that the price of getting arrested in Aurora just went up $50.

    The city council Tuesday night unanimously approved a $50 administrative fee to be charged to anyone processed by Aurora police after turning themselves in on a warrant or being arrested for a criminal offense or city ordinance violation.

    Many area communities, including Downers Grove, Darien, Oswego and Woodridge, already charge booking fees.

    The fee includes the cost of fingerprinting and photographing the offender and providing security during the booking process.
