Chicago Pays $22.5 MILLION to Gang Raped Woman

Chicago pays $22.5 MILLION to woman who was gang raped and plummeted from seventh story window after police failed to take proper care of her

City agrees today to give the staggering sum to Christina Eilman who was released from police custody into a high-crime area where she was gang raped and plummeted from a seventh floor window
Eilman, who is bipolar, should have been taken to a mental hospital for an exam but cops ignored NINE phone calls from her parents
The woman, who is now 27-years-old, suffered permanent brain damage from her fall and now needs constant medical attention
The settlement is the largest in city history
Chicago also paid out $10.25 million today to Alton Logan, who spent 26 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit
He alleged that police withheld evidence that would have set him free decades earlier


The city of Chicago agreed today to pay a record $22.5 million to a woman who was released from police custody in 2006 and instead of being taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, she was released into a high crime area where she was gang raped and plummeted seven stories.

Christina Eilman, was 21-years-old when the crime occurred and she suffered permanent brain damage from the fall and has needed constant medical care ever since.

Eilman, who is bipolar, was taken into police custody at Midway Airport after suffering a mental breakdown on her flight from California.


Rather than bring Eilman to a hospital, police released her after 29 hours in custody, despite her parents calling at least nine times to warn them about her mental health status and that she was having an episode.

Police later testified at a deposition hearing that she was visibly agitated and should have been taken to the hospital. Witnesses said she was throwing herself against the bars in her jail cell.

Eilman, a former UCLA student, was released near a housing project in a crime-ridden neighborhood on the city's notorious South Side when she encountered the sex fiends who attacked her.

She was dressed in just short shorts, a cutoff top and boots and was without her cellphone.

After being gang raped at knifepoint, she either fell or was pushed from a seven-story window, she suffered severe brain trauma and the 27-year-old will not recover.

'I’m embarrassed to think that a poor girl like this would have been so callously treated by members of the Chicago Police Department,' Alderman Edward Burke said, according to CBS/Chicago.

Her family had been seeking as much as $100 million in damages for pain and suffering and to cover Eilman's never-ending medical bills.
ng member Marvin Powell was convicted of abducting Eilman but not sexually assaulting her or causing her to go out the window.

He served part of a 12-year sentence before being paroled last spring.

Eilman's settlement was one of two major payouts by the Illinois city today.

Alton Logan will receive $10.25 million for spending 26 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit.
POLICE MISCONDUCT: SUMMARY OF TWO CASES

Christina Eilman received $22.5 million.

She was taken into police custody in 2006 after suffering a bipolar episode.

Instead of being taken for a psychiatric evaluation, police kept her overnight and then released her into a high-crime area.

She was then gang raped and plummeted from a seventh story window. Eilman, now 27, suffered permanent brain damage.

Alton Logan received $10.25 million for

In 1982, Logan was arrested for shooting a security guard during a robbery. He was later convicted despite there being no physical evidence against him.

He was later charged in a lawsuit that police knew another man possessed the dead security guard's weapon but kept that information quiet,keeping Logan behind bars.

Logan was arrested in 1982 for shooting Lloyd Wickliffe, an off-duty Cook County corrections officer who was working as a security guard, during a robbery attempt at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Despite no physical evidence linking him to the crime, Logan was convicted.

He later alleged a cover-up engineered by police Commander Jon Burge.

Burge was later sent to federal prison for lying about abusing and torturing suspects.

Logan was freed in April 2008 after lawyers for Andrew Wilson — a convicted cop killer — revealed that he had admitted to killing Wickliffe.

The attorneys didn't come forward until Wilson died in prison in 2007 because of their oath of confidentiality.

Logan alleged that cops who arrested Wilson knew he had Wickliffe's .38-caliber gun that was stolen off him after he was murdered.

The two settlements came after the city's alderman agreed at a vote this afternoon.

“As I sit here today, I’m both embarrassed and ashamed,” said Finance Committee Chairman Edward M. Burke, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.


'It is time to put this behind us — and we are trying diligently to put these cases behind us,' city lawyer Stephen Patton said today.

'But, we have to be very diligent for the next type of misconduct, for the next type of practice that could lead to exposure.

'We are trying to be on the top of the next [type of misconduct] And hopefully, nothing will be as egregious as Burge,' Patton said at the Alderman hearing.

Re: Chicago Pays $22.5 MILLION to Gang Raped Woman

Wow, this Jon Burge was a disgrace to Chicago: he tortured more than 200 people, ruined their lives, costed to the State zillions of dollars (only the review on his work costed $17 million), then a $19.8 million settlement was reached in December 2007 with the "city defendants", plus $10.25 million yesterday, basically this man costed to the taxpayers $47 million (and counting), and all he got was to be sentenced to four-and-one-half years in federal prison
They should lock him up, and then throw the key away, ruining someone's life is even worse than killing him in some cases

Re: Chicago Pays $22.5 MILLION to Gang Raped Woman

Christina eilman suffered a shattered pelvis, numerous other broken bones, and a severe TBI that she won't ever fully recover from , in her fall. She requires full-time care and will always have only a child-like grasp of reality. She's kind of in a limbo.. I know her parents were suing for $100 million. The money they settled for will probably cover her medical bills, since this happened when she was 21 and she's now 26, who knows her life expectancy? At least I think she lives at home with her parents, but live in nursing care is very spendy, and what about after her parents are gone?

The fact no go areas like that even exist in America makes me very angry. I bet it wasn't like that 50 years ago.
