In the summer of 1986, newlyweds Karen and Dyke Rhoads were found stabbed to death after a crime that climaxed with the bodies and their Paris, Ill., home being destroyed by fire.
As one of the many courts that eventually reviewed this murder case and its subsequent prosecution noted, "From the ashes of these gruesome murders rises another, deeply disturbing allegation: That police and a prosecutor conspired to frame two innocent men of these crimes and over the course of the next two decades, state officials continued to cover up those misdeeds."
The Shiller Preyar Law Offices is excited to celebrate the one-year anniversary of its trial win for Mr. Andy Montanez, plaintiff in the case of Montanez v. Fico. Shiller Preyar Law Offices fought hard to vindicate the constitutional rights of Mr. Montanez, a young man and life-long Chicago resident who had been beaten up by Chicago Police officer Vincent Fico on March 20, 2009. Mr. Montanez was thrilled, and said that "I had lots of lawyers in my time, but I never had lawyers that really cared. Best lawyers I ever had. Thank you."
