Another Excellent Adventure For Crimefile


Chicago, IL—For nearly a year I’ve been investigating a horrendous and notorious criminal case filed against a Chicago cop. When he was arrested five years ago the media swarmed all over this high profile case. The cop’s reputation and standing in the community was absolutely destroyed.

When I was asked to look into the case by a cop friend of 40 years, I soon learned that the accused cop’s defense lawyer had been barred from the practice of law and was still practicing anyway.

Eventually I learned the cop was absolutely innocent and nothing more than the victim of typical Cook County corruption shenanigans. The investigation by Chicago police detectives and internal affairs was the worst I’d seen in 40 years inside the Criminal Justice System.

The pretend lawyer was trying to force the accused cop into a guilty plea and felony conviction. The pretend lawyer never bothered to do anything but manage to get the case endlessly continued for over four years.

The cop fired the pretender and retained one of the country’s better criminal lawyers and on Monday we will finally begin trial. I don’t know how long this trial will last but I’ve never been so sure of how it will end. I will be there in court for the duration.

I can’t give any details now but stay tuned, this will unfold right here once the case gets resolved. I am convinced that the cop will be cleared and his pension will be protected.

I'll be looking forward to your update and hope that the copper has his name cleared. I also hope that the pretend lawyer gets charged with a crime.

I know just what case that is Paul. The State's Attorney and CPD should have to pay for what they've done to a good cop.

I'm embarrased to work for a department that treats its own officers like garbage.

One more year and I'm gone.

Paul, keep up the good work.
