Court Rules Against Re-Sentencing For Chicago Policeman In Laquan McDonald Murder

According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, the Illinois Supreme Court denied a request by state prosecutors to hold a new sentencing hearing for former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke who was sentenced to nearly seven years in prison for murdering 17 year-old Laquan McDonald.

Van Dyke was reportedly convicted in October in a case that highlighted racial tensions in America&apos;s third-largest city.

In January, Cook County Circuit Court Judge Vincent Gaughan sentenced Van Dyke to six years and nine months in prison on just the murder charge, arguing it was the more serious crime.
