Miguel Morales, who was tortured by Chicago Police officers Kenneth Boudreau,  James O’Brien, and John Halloran, will have a hearing at 9:30 am Tuesday, April 30, 2013  in Room 203 of the Cook County Criminal Court Building, 26th Street and California Ave.  Morales is asking that he be allowed to present evidence that he was tortured by police, and that he be granted a new trial in which his false confession is not allowed into evidence.

Family and supporters of justice in Chicago will attend the hearing to support Morales’ petition.  Frank Chapman, Chairperson of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression Organizing Committee to Stop Police Crimes, observed, “The case of Miguel Morales is another example of why the Police in Chicago need to be accountable to the people through an elected Civilian Police Accountability Council. (CPAC)”  Chapman called on people across the city to join the movement for an elected CPAC, and to come out for the mass march on City Hall demanding justice for victims of police crimes on August 28, 2013.

For more information, contact Bertha Escamilla, 708-220-6747; Frank Chapman, 312-513-3795.
