Assumed guilt led to dismissal of charges

Success - Article sent! close

The three Schaumburg police officers who are accused of wrongdoing have not been convicted in a court of law. Therefore, the 19 people who were arrested by them had cases dismissed because of an assumed guilt of the three.

Law does not go by assumption -- it has to be proven -- and that hasn't happened yet.
