The quoted statement below may be attributed to Will County States Attorney James Glasgow:
I am extremely disappointed with the civil jury verdict in this case and have directed our attorneys to immediately begin work on an appeal. I am highly confident that the county will prevail on its appeal because the jury was not allowed to hear critical evidence bearing on probable cause. We made multiple motions for mistrial during the course of this trial because we were not allowed to present evidence that had direct bearing on the decision by our detectives to eventually arrest Mr. Fox.
We continue to stand behind and support our detectives and the manner in which they conducted themselves throughout this investigation. It has always been our contention that the sheriffs deputies acted properly during the interview of Kevin Fox and that they had probable cause to arrest him.
