Judge Toomin decided the defense counsel was not totally ineffective. For
this reason Aaron will not receive a new trial based on ineffective
assistance of counsel.

The next stage is to wait for the next hearing. This hearing will determin
whether Aaron should receive a new trial based on new evidence arising since
the initial trial.. Namely the evidence of his torture at the hand of Jon
Burge, who has been found guilty of torture, and fired from the Chicago
Police force.

Details on the hearing are forthcoming.
