A jury found a Cook County Jail guard guilty of official misconduct, but not guilty in aiding in an escape.

Seven inmates got away in a jailbreak on Darin Gater's watch in 2006. All were eventually recaptured.

During the trial, there was testimony that the jailbreak was designed to embarrass former Cook County Sheriff Michael Sheahan.
