However, Cappleman said Miles can’t be released from prison without a “highly structured” plan.
“For the sake of Ms. Miles and the community, it’s time to take the next step to ensure the community is no longer terrorized by her behavior,” the alderman wrote in a letter to the review board.
Mujo Cesic, who authorities said Miles held at knifepoint, said he wants to see her stay behind bars.
“She should never be released,” he said.
The Cook County state’s attorney’s office said Miles has at least 73 convictions, but often failed to appear in court.
Fabio Valentini, head of Cook County’s criminal prosecutions bureau, defended his office’s handling of Miles’ recent cases.
He said that when she’s been charged with a felony — 10 times — she has been convicted. He added that within the last year, her cases were assigned to a one prosecutor available to talk to the public and authorities about her activities.
