Chicago (CBS) — Once, they were teenagers — convicted of the 1991 rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl in Dixmoor. Now the Dixmoor Five are adults: freed from prison by DNA, and they are suing authorities who investigated the case.
Four of the Dixmoor Five stood with their lawyers on Wednesday to announce the filing of federal lawsuits against Dixmoor Police and Illinois State Police officers.
‘I spent 20 years locked up for a crime I didn’t commit,’ said James Harden, who is one of the five. ‘I come home to nothing, for something I didn’t do. I just want the people to do the right thing, whatever that is. God bless you.’ CBS online article 17th October 2012
In 1991, a 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted and killed in Dixmoor, a village in south suburban Chicago. Ten months after the victim’s body was found, police focused their investigation around Robert Taylor, Jonathan Barr, James Harden, Robert Lee Veal and Shainne Sharp. Three of them confessed after high-pressure police interrogations, and all five were arrested and charged with the crime.
DNA testing was conducted on sperm cells from swabs of the victim’s body, and the profile pointed to a single unidentified male – excluding all five teens. Regardless, the five men were charged with the crime. Two of them pled guilty and testified against the others in exchange for shorter sentences. Both men have since recanted their testimony. The other three were convicted after trials, and each was sentenced to at least 80 years in prison.
In March 2011, DNA from semen found on the victim’s body was linked to a man with a lengthy record including sexual assault and armed robbery convictions. He was 32 years old when his DNA was found in the 14-year-old victim’s body, and he currently lives in Chicago. In a written motion opposing the release of the Dixmoor Five, the State’s Attorney’s office downplayed the significance of the DNA results, which clearly implicate a man with no connection to the five teens convicted of the crime.
After months of ignoring calls for justice, a Cook County Circuit Court judge finally agreed to set aside the convictions of Taylor, Barr, and Harden in November 2011. The State’s Attorney’s Office stated that it would be filing a motion soon to vacate the convictions of Veal and Sharp. Innocence Project online article
