CHICAGO POLICE ARREST TWO, INCLUDING TEEN, IN SHOOTING DEATH OF 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL

I have to get it off my chest before it kills me,” Smith wrote in a 2013 letter to his imprisoned brother, as he confessed to the crime. “So I’ll just come clean and pray you can forgive me.

Although a judge denied a retrial for Dugar in 2018, questioning the credibility of the confession, the decision was later reversed by the Court of Appeal. Dugar’s attorney, Ron Safer, argued that a jury would determine a different outcome, given the new evidence to the case.

After Smith’s confession, prosecutors argued that Smith only came clean after he was convicted for his involvement in a 2008 home invasion and armed robbery that left a 6-year-old boy shot in the head. He was already serving a 99-year prison sentence for his participation.

Kevin Dugar is set to live in a residential transitional facility for 90 days as a condition of his release, according to reports from the Chicago Tribute. His attorney says he hopes his client’s case will not be retried.

This case is in a very different situation than it was 20 几年前,” Safer told the Tribune.
