On 11/19/2017, Bianchi Law Group partner David Bruno appeared on Fox News’ America’s News HQ with attorney Stephanie L Willis and host Eric Shawn to discuss the mass exoneration of 15 defendants after corruption within the Chicago PD was discovered where officers would plant drugs and demand monetary payment from people to not arrest them.
Only the tip of the Iceberg
As discussed, I believe the 15 convictions overturned this week (dating back to 2003-2008) is only the tip of the iceberg. Prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys, and public defenders must engage in a painstaking review to determine if there are other cases that should be reversed. Every single case that Sgt. Watts and his men touched must be carefully reviewed.
