IL County Drops 19 Cases After Cops Arrested



In the wake of the January 2013 arrests in DuPage County of former Schaumburg undercover officers John Cichy, Matthew Hudak and Terrance O'Brien on charges of criminal drug conspiracy, Cook County prosecutors dismissed charges against 19 defendants whose pending cases involved one or more of the officers.

The case reports provide a glimpse of how the three officers conducted undercover work, intercepting drug deliveries at locations around the suburbs and recruiting new informants.
