Former Teacher Patrick McCarthy Sues Schaumburg And Detective

 Patrick McCarthy, a former special education teacher at Robert Frost Junior High School, has filed a lawsuit against the Village of Schaumburg and detective K. Feeley alleging malicious prosecution. Back in 2007, McCarthy was charged with battery and unlawful restraint against three autistic children in his class. He was accused of forcing a student to jump on a trampoline with a weighted vest and tying a student to a chair. Last December Cook County Circuit Court judge John Scotillo found McCarthy not guilty. In his suit, McCarthy alleges that Detective Feeley charged him knowing that he was innocent.
