Ill. cadet says he was fired over 'raspy voice'
The officer claims he was fired after training that tested how far his voice would carry
CHICAGO — A man has sued the City of Evanston, claiming he was fired as a police cadet because of his "very raspy" voice.
Reginald Johnson of Dolton was hired as a cadet on Sept. 6, 2008, and fired less than two weeks later, according to his recent federal lawsuit, which alleges a violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act.
