Jury Gets it (Partly) Correct
It won't stop the civil suit from going forward, but it's nice to see this:
- A South Side man who led Chicago Police on a high-speed chase after he burglarized a high school classmate’s apartment was convicted of the murder of woman who was killed when an officer crashed into her during the frenetic pursuit.
Cook County jurors were sequestered late Friday night after they couldn’t decide whether Timothy Jones was responsible for Jacqueline Reynolds’ death.
But after roughly two more hours of deliberation Saturday, the jury convicted 22-year-old Jones for the murder as well as the May 8, 2013 burglary that prosecutors said that kick-started the deadly chain reaction.
Unbelievably, this asshole was acquitted of the underlying Armed Robbery and Home Invasion charges that sparked the chase in the first place. How that happened, we have no idea.
