Statement from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office Regarding The 1994 Murder Case of People v. Roberto Almodovar and William Negron

April 12, 2017

“After a thorough and deliberate review of the evidence and arguments presented to the circuit court, the State’s Attorney’s Office has concluded that the evidence presented could change the result of this case on retrial. In light of this decision, we have determined that proceeding with this case is no longer in the best interests of justice and we are withdrawing our opposition to Petitioners’ request for a new trial. Based on the totality of the evidence currently available, the Office has concluded that it is insufficient to support a retrial of this case."
