William Amor, who was recently acquitted after having been first convicted of murdering his mother-in-law in the 1990’s, is now seeking to receive compensation from the state, and to have his record expunged. His attorneys have requested a certificate of innocence from the judge who ruled on the case, and are hoping for a settlement of about $200,000, for the two decades that Amor was imprisoned. Prosecutors plan to object to the request when the case returns to court on June 18.
95th Street/Book Road Reconstruction:
City officials held an open house last night to get input on reconstruction plans for the 95th Street-Book Road intersection. Residents weighed in with hopes for the addition of right turn lanes, and concerns about keeping space free to turn into driveways, among other suggestions. According to city officials, this intersection has about twice as many accidents as would be expected of a normal intersection of this type. The information from the open house will be used by city planners to create a rough proposal to be presented later this summer, with construction expected to begin in 2020.
Girls Soccer Sectional Semifinals:
The girls soccer sectional semifinals were held last night with five Naperville area teams hoping to advance. The first game featured Naperville Central facing crosstown rival Naperville North. The Huskies struck first just before halftime taking a 1-0 lead. Central tied the game on a corner kick thanks to a Maddie Mills header. The game went to double overtime where Hannah Martin scored the game winner, moving Naperville North to its third straight sectional finals.
Neuqua Valley took on Metea Valley in the next game looking for revenge after the Mustangs knocked the Wildcats out in last year’s sectional. The game was all Neuqua as the Wildcats scored twice in both halves while not allowing a goal. Neuqua moves on to face Naperville North on Friday.
In class 2A, Benet Academy jumped on Nazareth early, scoring in the first few minutes. The Redwings went on to shut out the Roadrunners 3-0 to advance to the sectional final against St. Ignatius on Friday. Bent has won its three playoff games by a combined score of 21 to nothing.
