Watch the newspaper and nwherald.com over the next two weeks or so for coverage of Gary Gauger’s malicious-prosecution case. Gauger was convicted - and later exonerated - of his elderly parents’ 1993 murders on their farm outside Richmond.
Jury selection is continuing this afternoon for a trial in which Gauger is seeking millions of dollars in damages from McHenry County for the more than three years he spent behind bars and for alleged post-traumatic stress disorder.
Much has been written about Gauger's legal ordeals, including:
• Oct. 18: Gauger writes book about his wrongful conviction
• March 5, 2008: TV series to depict area case
• Jan. 31, 2005: Silence drapes Gauger murder cases
• Oct. 27, 2004: Two gang members charged in Gauger murders
