On Tuesday, prosecutors asked Judge Thaddeus Wilson to vacate Maxson’s conviction.
Maxson was released from Stateville Correctional Center on Tuesday afternoon. He was serving a life sentence.
Maxson initially drew the attention of police because he told a TV reporter he bought chips for Lindsey and told the boy to go home a day before he was found dead under debris in an abandoned garage near 107th and State. But police said Maxson’s story kept changing.
He allegedly confessed that he sexually assaulted and killed the boy in the garage after smoking crack and drinking beer.
Maxson accuses the detectives of punching and kicking him during their interrogations and says he was coerced into giving a confession.
No physical evidence linked Maxson to Lindsey’s murder. At his trial, a prosecution witness who examined a bloodstain on the boy’s shirt and one on his jeans testified the stains couldn’t have come from Maxson or the boy. Based on his confession, though, the jury convicted Maxson.
As an Urban Translator, who did time at Statesville blessed By God to become an ex-felon pardoned by Govenor Jim Thompson. To be able to aide and assist Mark Maxin to come from behind the walls of Statesville a free man, is our testimony to what God can do.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform are very important pieces to the solution!
