An Illinois State Police trooper was acquitted Wednesday of felony charges that he shot into his ex-girlfriend’s Southwest Side home two years ago, though a judge found him guilty of a lesser charge.
Juan Lopez, now 32, had been charged last July with home invasion and aggravated discharge of a firearm…
Cook County prosecutors alleged Lopez meant to harm the woman – also a trooper – whom he’d broken up with two weeks before he came to her home and fired six bullets into the rear sliding glass door and kitchen window.
Lopez testified that he “mistakenly” thought a crime was in progress…
Lopez was convicted of a misdemeanor count of reckless conduct and sentenced to court supervision….
“He hopes he can return to the job he loves soon”….
