Posted: July 20, 2013 by scaryhouse in Uncategorized

Chicago taxpayers will shell out $10 million to compensate a man who spent 25 years in prison for a double-murder he did not commit after being beaten into confessing by convicted former police Cmdr. Jon Burge and his crew at Area 2.

On Friday, the City Council’s Finance Committee approved the settlement for 47 year-old Eric Caine, bringing the tab for police abuse and misconduct cases resolved this year to at least $64 million and the overall tab for Burge-related cases to nearly $70 million.
