WELL, GOOD: Woman acquitted of criminal eavesdropping on police. “Tiawanda Moore testified she decided to record the meeting when the investigators tried to talk her out of following through on her complaint of sexual harassment against a patrol officer who had come to her home on a domestic disturbance. The Criminal Court jury took less than an hour to acquit Moore, 20, a former stripper, on the two felony counts. She had faced up to 15 years in prison if convicted.” An embarrassing loss for Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, but a deserved one.
