To the extent that plaintiff’s claims challenge his 2014 convictions for aggravated
assault, possession of firearms prohibited and carrying firearms in a public street, they are barred
by Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477, 486-87 (1994), as is plaintiff’s claim for malicious
prosecution. These claims are dismissed without prejudice to plaintiff filing a new civil action
for damages against an appropriate defendant only in the event that plaintiff’s convictions or
sentence are elsewhere overturned or otherwise called into question.
