Illinois State Trooper Matt Mitchell
Trooper Matt Mitchell was seeking compensation for injuries he suffered in his 2007 reckless homicide crash that killed two.
“It is personally distressing that Mitchell wore the uniform of the Illinois State Police,” Haine said.
Mitchell later pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and was sentenced to 30 months of probation. His claim for workers’ compensation for his injuries was denied.
