Prosecutors drop charges against couple targeted by corrupt Chicago cop
CHICAGO — Cook County prosecutors have dropped narcotics charges against a man and his wife who said they were framed more than a decade ago.
Ben Baker was released from jail in January.
Several days ago, he and his wife filed a petition saying Sgt. Ronald Watts planted drugs on both of them in 2005.
Watts and one of his officers were charged in 2012 of shaking down a drug courier who turned out to be an FBI informant.
