Patrick Thompson’s Motion For Retrial This Week
Community Court Watch calls everyone to the courtroom:
Thursday, January 4th at 9 a.m. in courtroom A
Patrick Thompson is one of the videographers that created the controversial documentary, Citizen’s Watch in 2004. In July, Thompson was found guilty of home invasion and sexual abuse, charges we believe to be retaliation for his political activism. Thompson is facing 6-30 years in prison. This for an alleged crime for which there are no witnesses and no physical evidence.
Attorney Bob Kirchner has filed a motion for re-trial. On Thursday, Thompson will either be granted a new trial or be sent to prison.
It is only due to public pressure that Thompson remains a free man. Help Community Court Watch put eyes on this case of legal in-justice.
Also, join us Wednesday, January 3rd at 11 a.m. for the trial of Sgt. Myers, accused of torturing inmates with Tasers in the Champaign County jail.
