Officer Gerald Callahan was found guilty of battery Thursday for punching a 61-year-old Morton Grove man and a 50-year-old Niles woman May 17, 2008 while he was off duty. He was sentenced to two years probation, fined $1,325 and ordered to perform 60 days of Sheriff's Work Alternative Program service, according to Cook County court records.He kept his job despite other alcohol-related events. He still hasn't been fired even now. Whether he keeps his job is up to the Police Review Authority. And I expect the union might have something to say if the PRA decided to fire him.
