Former Auburn High School bowler in national legal spotlight

CHICAGO — A former RPS 205 bowler is in the national legal spotlight.

Keenan Saulter, who competed on Auburn High School’s bowling team in the 1990s, is the attorney representing Anjanette Young, whose home was wrongly raided in 2019 by the Chicago Police Department.

Young’s home was raided based on faulty information from an informant. The incident was captured by a police body-worn camera but the footage wasn’t released until recently. The case has gained national attention.

Saulter graduated from Auburn in 1993 and earned bachelor’s degree in political science from Illinois State University in 1997.

At ISU, he was student body president, president of the Black Student Union and captain of the trial advocacy team. He then earned his law degree from Howard University in Washington, D.C., a school that includes a long list of distinguished graduates such as Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Saulter started out working for Barrick, Switzer, Long, Balsley & Van Evera in Rockford in 2002 before launching his own firm in Chicago in 2003. Today, he is owner and principal of Saulter Law P.C.
