Felony Franks may reopen in Evanston

Felony Franks may not have received a death sentence when it recently closed its doors. The owner is discussing moving the hot dog joint to north suburban Evanston.

Felony Franks served "Misdemeanor Wieners" and "Probation Burgers" for three years on Chicago's West Side until it shut down last month.

The restaurant was credited with helping people find jobs after prison. Others called the name insensitive.

The owner is meeting with residents Thursday night to discuss a possible move.
