7 Murders Not Enough For Death Penalty In Suburban Chicago Browns Chicken Sentencing

Life in prison for among one of the worst crimes in US history and today the murder 15 years later is sentenced to life in prison at our expense.

I ate at this little place many times before this heainous crime occurred miles from my home at the time in north suburban Palatine IL and remember the morning all too well as all did  hearing this first thing on Friday night, January 8, 1993 into about 3 am Saturday morning as I remember when it was discovered.

I was just coming home from Friday night when we heard. :(

Personally, I cannot believe this man James Degorski is sitting in prison for the next 50 years at at 50,000 a year instead of being put to death, all because of 2 from 12 jurors if you can believe that Illinois law.

One of which calls for unanimity in the eventual death sentence, which to me,  creates an easily taintable decision by just getting to one single juror one way or another,  instead of requiring a simple majority, which  isn't fair to the victims in my world.

Jury sentences James Degorski to life in prison Chicago Crime: "After more than five hours of deliberation, a Cook County jury took “mercy’’ on convicted killer James Degorski by sentencing him to life in prison for his role in the Brown’s Chicken mass murders in Palatine.

The sentence brings to a close one of the most notorious crimes in the area in recent history."Degorski remained stoic when his sentence was read in at Cook County Circuit Court. The jury was originally 8 to 4 in favor of the death penalty and then later, 10 to 2, the jury forewoman said after the sentencing.

But without a unanimous vote, Degorski couldn't be sentenced to death.  more
