McCullough says court slighted him during his trial

The man convicted of killing a 7-year old Sycamore girl nearly 55 years ago says the court slighted him during his trial.

72-year old Jack McCullough of Seattle, Washington claims FBI records would have cleared him from the crime. That information was not heard during the trial.

McCullough, formerly from Sycamore, said that the judge did not allow the documents because the people named in them are dead and can not account for what's written.

McCullough has penned a letter to residents in Sycamore asking them to review the records and help set him free.

He was convicted last month for killing Maria Ridulph in 1957. A sentencing hearing has been set for November 30th in DeKalb County court in Sycamore.
