Civil rights attorney Adele Nicholas, whose office is located in Chicago, has joined the board of directors of ACSOL, a nationwide non-profit organization. Nicholas’ legal practice is devoted to fighting systemic abuses in the criminal justice systems as well as combatting police misconduct.
“We are delighted that Ms. Nicholas has agreed to join the leadership of ACSOL,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “She is a zealous advocate for rational evidence-based sex offense laws and has devoted a substantial part of her practice to successfully challenging the constitutionality of residency restrictions, presence restrictions and registration laws in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.”
Nicholas is the sixth attorney to join the current ACSOL board of directors. Additional board members who are attorneys include Chance Oberstein, Catherine Carpenter, Ira Ellman, Janice Bellucci and Alex Landon. The remaining ACSOL board members include sociologist Emily Horowitz, Guy Hamilton-Smith, author Frank Lindsay, auditor David Whitehead, homeless advocate Alex Gittinger and emotional support group leader Sherri Harlow.
