There were audible gasps in the courtroom last night as the jury announced the guilty verdict in the Lauryn Fisher murder case. Fisher, a well-regarded veteran of the Chicago Police Dept, was found guilty of second-degree murder of her husband. The Lockhart Gardner defense team argued that Mr. Fisher's death was not a murder but a suicide, stressing a ballistics report that supported the theory that the wound was self-inflicted. The SA's office still managed a conviction, however, and the prosecutor with the feather in his cap is none other than recently promoted Cary "the Boy Wunder" Agos.
The 28-year-old white wunderkind's prosecution of an African-American female cop has fueled charges of racial bias in the SA's office. Furthermore, the CPD objected to the verdict as one of their own being railroaded, casting a chill over the cozy relationship the police and SA's office typically share. Even without the plummeting temperatures in Chicago, we'd advise the new Deputy State's Attorney to button up. We guess things are about to suddenly turn pretty frosty for the Boy Wunder.
