Off-duty officer got special treatment in fatal hit-run case, prosecutors argue

January 17, 2012, By Jason Meisner, Chicago Tribune reporter

A Chicago police officer accused in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 13-year-old boy received preferential treatment from investigators who drove the off-duty officer to a restroom, delayed field-sobriety tests and overlooked key evidence that he was intoxicated, prosecutors said Tuesday in closing arguments.

A Cook County jury deliberated on the fate of Richard Bolling into the evening without reaching a verdict. Deliberations are scheduled to resume Wednesday morning. The veteran narcotics officer, 42, is on trial on charges of aggravated DUI, reckless homicide and leaving the scene of a fatal accident in the May 2009 crash that killed Trenton Booker, who was riding his bike late at night.
