Judge postpones federal wrongful conviction trial
CHICAGO – A federal judge has postponed a trial over allegations that Chicago police covered up the torture of suspects.
U.S. District Judge Elaine Bucklo announced the delay Monday, as a jury was about to be chosen for the trial involving a lawsuit filed by Alton Logan. He was wrongfully imprisoned for 26 years for a murder he didn’t commit, released in 2008 and declared innocent in 2009.
Bucklo says there are “issues that need to be resolved,” and set a new trial date of Dec. 17.
