Settlement between Chicago, pardoned man is reached in 1952 rape conviction

So basically say 60 YEARS AGO the police beat you and forced you to confess to a rape that you didn't do... Nobody left alive to say it didn't happen and the City of Chicago settles with you for probably MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. FUCKING AMAZING!

Oscar Walden Jr. said Chicago police beat him, forced confession 60 years ago



A settlement has been reached between the city of Chicago and an 80-year-old man who said police beat him and forced him to confess to a 1951 rape.
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed under a judge’s order.

Oscar Walden Jr. filed his lawsuit in 2004, seeking $15 million from the city for his 1951 rape conviction. Walden, who is African-American, was accused of raping a white woman. He was pardoned by Gov. George Ryan in 2002.

A federal jury in February 2011 found in the city’s favor, but a federal judge in March ordered a new trial, calling the conduct of attorneys who represented the city “unethical.”

“There must be a bright line between aggressive advocacy and ‘win-at-all-costs’ unethical conduct,” the judge wrote. “That bright line has been crossed.”

I remember reading about this case - I thought that this guy was unable to prove his innocence and that he probably did rape the woman. This settlement probably only occurred because he was pardoned by that corrupt moronic former governor Jim Ryan.

At least jail kept him out of trouble over the last 60 years.
Imagine how many more rapes he would have committed.
