Chicago to settle 2 more police torture lawsuits
CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago City Council committee has signed off on settlements in two lawsuits filed by men who allege they were victims of police torture during the tenure of former Chicago Police Cmdr. Jon Burge.
The settlements totaling $7.17 million still need the full City Council's approval.
More than $5 million would go to Michael Tillman, who says officers tortured him for four days until he confessed to murder. He was exonerated after spending more than 23 years in prison.
