Chicago – A man imprisoned for multiple killings was recently awarded $500,000 in a lawsuit against a prison guard. As reported by ABC News, James Eric Degorski, was granted the award in a civil case brought against prison guard Thomas Wilson over an alleged attack when he arrived at Cook County prison in 2002.

Degorski was previously sentenced to life in prison in connection with the deaths of two restaurant owners and five employees at a diner in Chicago in 1993. Degorki and his accomplice, Juan Luna, were convicted on related charges in 2002.

Degorski filed the lawsuit against Wilson in 2004.

Wilson’s attorney, John Winters Jr., is quoted as stating of the case to ABC News, “We were unable to expose Mr. Degorski for what he is: brutal and vicious… I’m a little mortified by this. I will represent any of the victims, I will represent them for no fee to make sure this guy does not get a dime.”
