Father Not-Guilty in Drowning Death of His Son

An Illinois court recently found a Romeoville man not guilty by reason of insanity in the drowning death of his 18-month-old son, reports say.

Chidi Esi, 29-year-old, was convicted recently of drowning his son in a bathtub, but the court determined that Esi's mental state prevented him from being conscious of his own actions.

The drowned boy, who died on Oct. 9, 2009, was apparently fed an antipsychotic medicine and then -- while unable to remain lucid -- drowned in a bathtub.

Reports say the Illinois Department of Human Services will be evaluating Esi and give the report to the presiding judge this summer who will rule on what mental health treatment he will receive.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
