CHICAGO - He couldn't be a Chicago cop 20 years ago because of his criminal arrest record, but the Illinois Department of Corrections and Illinois taxpayers are now paying him $110,000 a year to advise the department's chief of parole.
That's the story the Chicago Sun Times tells about Xadrian R. McCracken:
Xadrian R. McCraven has a criminal history that includes “at least” 24 arrests on charges including arson, illegal gun possession, attempted robbery, drug possession and aggravated assault, according to federal court records.
More details about other government jobs he's held and lost over the years is detailed in the story, raising the question of whether there might be more qualified prospects for the job, with less controversial work histories.
