The Springfield man who is suing city police, claiming they have been harassing him for years, has now pleaded guilty in more than a half-dozen of the cases pending against him.
The Illinois Times reports Christian pleaded guilty late last month to charges including reckless driving and fleeing police. The charges stem from a 2012 traffic stop which Christian had claimed was illegal and unfounded.
Christian was slapped with more than $2,500 in fines… but evaded jail and was given court supervision, apparently allowing him to keep his license. Christian tells the Illinois Times that he doesn’t think the guilty pleas will compromise his pending federal lawsuit against the city.
