This was an arrest from 2011. So there are two ways that it could be looked at:

It's a prior offense, before the 7th Circuit ruling, so no-go.

Or, even though it was ruled unconstitutional in Dec 2012, it was ALWAYS unconstitutional, and so every charge and/or conviction under these laws will need to be reviewed and overturned.

That second option could be messy if/when people start suing the state. The state is broke as it is.
