On September 13, 2012, the Superintendent of Police filed with the Police Board of the City of Chicago charges against two police officers, recommending that the officers be discharged from the Chicago Police Department for violation of Department Rules 1, 2, 6, 8 and 10. The Police Board convened a hearing on these charges against the officers on February 6 and 13, 2013. Following the hearing, the members of the Police Board read and reviewed the record of proceedings and viewed the video-recording of the testimony of the witnesses.

The Police Board found the officers guilty in that on March 19, 2010 the officers knowingly allowed members of a street gang to view and photograph a member of a rival street gang in their custody.

As a result the Board determined that cause existed for discharging both officers from their positions as police officers with the Department of Police, and from the services of the City of Chicago.
