Anita is very angry:
- A Cook County prosecutor was fired Monday for allegedly giving false testimony in a case against a man charged with shooting a Chicago Police officer in 2012 — raising the possibility key evidence could be tossed out.
The mother of suspect Paris Sadler made a secret 30-minute audio recording of her interview with prosecutors the day after Officer Del Pearson was seriously wounded in a shooting on March 19, 2012, officials say. Pearson underwent more than five hours of surgery to save his life after a bullet severed an artery. He was chasing Sadler, who was suspected of violating a curfew, police said.
Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Joseph Lattanzio — who took statements from witnesses after the shooting — was fired Monday. He is accused of lying recently on the witness stand about a written statement he took from Sadler’s mother on March 20, 2012.
