No Charges Filed After Stone Calls Braiman After 2 a.m.

Village President Jeff Braiman told police he wanted to sign criminal complaints against Lisa Stone. An assistant state's attorney decided that the incident did not warrant charges.

No criminal charges will be filed following a complaint from Village President Jeff Braiman regarding a middle-of-the-night phone call he received Sunday from Lisa Stone. 

Braiman reported at 9:35 a.m. Jan. 13 that Stone called his home at 2:36 a.m. that day. The call went to the answering machine, where the caller began to leave a message identifying herself  as “the former trustee, Lisa Stone, the honest one,” according to the police report. At that point, Braiman’s wife picked up the phone, asked who was calling and said to Stone, “How dare you call, go to hell,” according to the report.

Braiman told police that Stone had visited his Arlington Heights law office two weeks prior to the phone call to deliver a business card for her sex toy business. Braiman did not report that visit to Arlington Heights police, he told Buffalo Grove officers. He told police Jan. 13 that the situation with Stone “appears to be escalating,” and that he wanted to pursue criminal complaints. 

Buffalo Grove police consulted with the Lake County State’s Attorney’s office on Jan. 14, providing information about the Jan. 13 incident as well as Stone’s recent visit to Braiman’s law office.

Buffalo Grove police and an assistant state’s attorney concluded that neither of the complaints that might apply — disorderly conduct and harassment by telephone — warranted a charge against Stone.

Buffalo Grove police also contacted Stone on Jan. 14 to warn her that she will face criminal charges if she continues to contact the Braimans.

Stone told police that she placed the early morning phone call to tell Braiman “the village website was not working and because he is an elected official he should be available in an emergency.”

“I explained that it was 2:30 a.m. when she called,” the officer wrote in the report. “Ms. Stone said she understood.”

I wonder if Stone's phone number is listed? Never know when someone might want to place an order for a sex toy in the middle of the night. Operators are standing by...

If there's a village out there looking for an idiot, Buffalo Grove has one to spare. Thank you Lisa Stone agaiin for seeking another 15 minutes of shame-fame.

Time for somebody to put on a fake wig and start dancing at the Village Tavern.

None of this infantile pursuit is work spending any tax payer dollars on. This whole thing is becoming an embarrassment to Buffalo Grove. Any public official must have a good sense of priority and the ability to make objective decisions that represent the people. I commend the assistant state’s attorney for having a sense of perspective and stopping this embarrassment in it's tracks.

Sounds like she needs to spend more time at home product testing.
