Former Governor Thompson Files To Help Beaman Sue Police
(Springfield, IL) — Former Illinois Governor Jim Thompson is joining the effort to help an exonerated man sue the police officers who he says set him up. The governor last week was one of several high profile leaders and lawyers to file a letter of support for Allan Beaman, who was convicted of the 1993 murder of his former girlfriend. A court later vacated his conviction. Beaman is trying to sue three Normal Police detectives who he says fabricated evidence. The Illinois Supreme Court is reconsidering Beaman’s request.
