Logan v. City of Chicago, et al. (26 years in prison) Alton Logan was convicted in 1983 of shooting and killing a security guard at a McDonald’s restaurant in Chicago. In 2007, attorneys for Andrew Wilson came forward and disclosed that their client, Mr. Wilson, had admitted to the McDonald’s killing years ago. Based on this new evidence, Logan was released from prison in 2007 and Logan has received a certificate of innocence from the presiding judge of the Criminal Division of the Cook County Circuit Court. Logan has now sued numerous retired Chicago police officers claiming they framed him for the murder. The case is currently pending in the Northern District of Illinois.
