Glenn Evans acquittal

A Cook County judge acquitted Chicago police commander Glenn Evans of aggravated battery and official misconduct charges, despite DNA evidence. Judge Diane Cannon said Ricky Williams gave inconsistent statements during the investigation and the trial. Williams said Evans rammed a gun down his throat and tased him in the groin. Locke Bowman, a Northwestern law professor and executive director of the MacArthur Justice Center, dissects Evans’ acquittal. (WBEZ/Chip Mitchell)
