Sidley Austin Secures Release of David Housler

On October 4, 2010, David Housler was released from prison after nearly 14 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit.  Mr. Housler was convicted of killing four people in in 1997, based on a false confession extracted through prosecutorial misconduct.  A team at Sidley Austin LLP led by partner Paul Hemmersbaugh successfully demonstrated the flaws and mistakes in the prosecution’s case. 

Congratulations to the Sidley Austin team!
