Malicious Prosecution And Wrongful Conviction In Illinois
When police arrest and prosecute someone for a crime, they need probable cause to do so. Unfortunately, false arrests, malicious criminal prosecution and wrongful convictions still occur each year. Innocent people spend months or even years in jail for crimes they did not commit.
Our firm has a proven track record of successfully representing the victims of false arrest, malicious prosecution and wrongful conviction.
- In one case, our firm recovered $7.5 million for three men who were jailed by the Chicago Police Department for a murder they did not commit.
- In 2012, our firm obtained a $1 million settlement from the City of Chicago for two men who were maliciously prosecuted by the Chicago police.
