Georgia Thompson Seeking Reimbursement

A state employee wrongly imprisoned for corruption wants reimbursement for legal fees and other expenses totaling $360,000.

Georgia Thompson’s lawyer says she deserves reimbursement from state taxpayers even though federal prosecutors brought the case that wrongly sent her to an Illinois prison for four months.

Thompson was convicted in 2006 of steering a contract to a company with political ties to Governor Doyle.

She served four months behind bars before an appeals court ruled she was innocent and ordered her freed.
