The meeting had not been publicized by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office at the time of publication.

At 4:56 p.m. on Wednesday, the Chicago Justice Project was able to speak to a member of Emanuel’s press team. The spokesperson for the mayor’s office said that they could not yet confirm anything, but would try to follow up Wednesday evening.

At the time of publication The Chicago Justice Project had not received a response from the mayor’s office confirming or denying the meeting in regards to Andrea Zopp.
