A Chicago man is getting 25-million dollars after serving 16 years behind bars for a crime he didn't commit. Thaddeus Jimenez served nearly half of his sentence before being exonerated in 2009. He sued a Chicago police officer claiming he tampered with evidence that would've proved his innocence.

A spokesperson with the Center on Wrongful Convictions says this could be the biggest wrongful conviction settlement in Illinois history.
