Two Chicago building inspectors are out of jobs after being accused of lying on their applications. The two allegedly presented journeyman carpenters' cards as part of their applications for the $50,000 a year jobs. But local media started asking questions about how a 19-year-old and a 23-year-old could get the six years experience normally required for those cards. Reporters revealed that the two were sons of high-ranking carpenters' union officials. The two face $500 fines if found guilty, but the city says it has no plans to punish the union, its top officials, or the building commissioner.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
