Court upholds CPD officer’s conviction for shooting into car full of teens
A federal appeals court just upheld the conviction of a former Chicago police officer accused of using excessive force.
Marco Proano is serving five years in federal prison for firing 16 shots into a car full of teens in 2013. Two teens were hurt.
Proano’s attorney asked for a new trial, saying the jury heard improper evidence, and prosecutors relied on inadmissible statements; the court said no.
