$25M settlement in wrongful conviction of Thaddeus Jimenez
A jury has awarded $25 million to a man who was wrongfully convicted of a crime.
Thaddeus Jimenez spent 16 years in prison for the murder of 18-year-old Eric Morro in 1993. He is believed to be the youngest person in the country ever to be wrongfully convicted and later exonerated.
Jimenez sued a Chicago police detective, claiming the officer manipulated evidence and withheld evidence of his innocence.
