Lawyer: Burge said shock device left 'no marks' - Chicago Breaking News

02:03 |

Lawyer: Burge said shock device left 'no marks' - Chicago Breaking News: "'He'd say, 'Oh, we're not bringing out the box today. What are you talking about? Watson, we don't have a black box,' ' said Watson, who represented a number of Gangster Disciples street gang members. 'Once he said to me, 'The box leaves no marks.' '
Burge is charged with obstruction of justice and perjury for allegedly lying in a 2003 lawsuit in which he gave written answers denying his use or knowledge of torture.
Watson said Burge's remark stuck with her for decades. She said she believed he was telling the truth but later tried to fend off questions from Burge's lawyer about why she didn't do more to make public such an allegedly damning statement.
Watson represented Melvin Jones, who last week testified that Burge shocked him, hit him with a stapler and pointed a loaded gun at him. Watson said Jones immediately told her of the abuse he sustained but that it took some time for her to file motions about the abuse in Jones' criminal case.
But she said that she has repeated Burge's statement about the electrical device numerous times over the years to both local and federal authorities, despite her desire to avoid involvement in the allegations against Burge."
