Stanley Wrice

Stanley Wrice did 30 years in an Illinois Prison before his release last December. Sentenced to 100 years, Wrice was accused in a 1982 rape that he falsely confessed to after police tortured and beat him for hours.

His allegations against the Chicago police department added to more than 20 other inmates who accused authorities of the same tactics. As a result, Chicago has shelled out over $80 million in torture cases over the years.
