| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Two more cases of alleged torture were filed this morning by the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission for the defendants David Randle and Gerald Reed.

The cases were filed with Cook Country Circuit Court Chief Judge Timothy Evans.

The commission found credible evidence that Randle and Reed were tortured into confessions that led to their convictions.

The commission expects to file additional cases later this week.

I'm glad that Gerald Reed is getting his day in court, hopefully Cook County States Attorney Alvarez will save the taxpayer's from spending money by not prosecting this case and the other four cases that the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission has found CREDIBLE EDVIDENCE THAT THEY WERE TORTURED INTO CONFESSIONS THAT LED TO THEIR CONVICTIONS.
