OAK PARK, Ill. -- A prison-themed hot dog joint in west suburban Oak Park is celebrating its one year anniversary.

It's home of the “Misdemeanor Wiener.”

The owners hire ex- offenders, hoping to give them a second chance.

Felony Franks first opened on the city's near West Side, but a legal skirmish over signage forced it to shut down.

Oak Park welcomed the establishment, and one year later.. Business is good.
