Chicago's Nationally Recognized Civil Rights And Criminal Defense Law Firm

Chicago-july 9, 2013 Defendant Found Not Guilty Of Battery To Officer And Resisting Arrest.

A Cook County Judge found a Chicago man not guilty of attacking and fleeing from Chicago Police Officers after a tumultuous bench trial on Tuesday. The man suffered injuries to his head, face and abdomen and was taken by police to an area hospital after his arrest. Police told emergency room personnel that the defendant hit his head after he fell down while fleeing, yet the officer's own reports state that the officers used force, including a "head stun," "closed fist strike/punch" and "knee strike" on the man. Erickson & Oppenheimer argued the officers "lacked credibility" and have yet to determine if a federal civil rights law suit alleging excessive force is next.
