Exonerated after 19 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit, a man claims in court that Chicago Heights' "infamously corrupt" police bribed witnesses to frame him, to protect their guilty snitch.

Rodell Sanders sued Chicago Heights, its police Officers Jeffrey Bohlen, Sam Mangialardi, Robert Pinnow, Charles Nardoni, Anthony Murphy and Joseph Rubestelli, FBI Agent Maureen Teed, and other employees of Chicago Heights.
