Jury Awards $27M to Chicago Man for Wrongful Murder, Arson Conviction

Hall of jail cells.

Adam Gray had just turned 14 when he was arrested and accused of starting a fatal blaze at a home in Chicago’s Brighton Park neighborhood in 1993.

He spent 24 years behind bars for murder and arson until his conviction was vacated and he was released in 2017.

Gray, now 44, sued the city and the police officers he claimed framed him and coerced his confession. On Thursday, a U.S. District Court jury awarded him $27 million in damages.
