On Monday, April 20th, Dante Servin was acquitted of killing Rekia Boyd when a judge granted his defense attorney’s motion for a directed verdict. Servin was never even required to present his defense. This is a very rare move, and it’s hard to understand why this happened. Come to this teach-in to learn about the legal basis of the judge’s decision, the standards for a DOJ prosecution of Servin, and to strategize together about how best to move forward.
Attorneys Rabya Khan (CAIR-Chicago) Joey Mogul (People’s Law Office), Alan Mills (Uptown People’s Law Center), and Cliff Nellis (Lawndale Christian Legal Center) will be present to provide an overview of the law and answer questions. There will be food and childcare available.
This is a public event geared toward those supporting Rekia’s family and organizing around accountability for Servin.
