On March 13, police fatally shot Breonna Taylor in her home. The cops were serving a narcotics search warrant. It was a part of a wide-ranging police operation targeting Glover, Taylor’s former boyfriend. The officers arrested Glover and other members on drug trafficking charges later that night.
Activists in Louisville along with celebrities and athletes have called for the officers to be charged in her death. This led to months of protests.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office is now handling the case which, according to Cameron, is coming to a conclusion.
PLEA BARGAIN IN TAYLOR’s CASE
Breonna Taylor’s family lawyer said prosecutors offered a plea bargain to an accused drug trafficker. They would have forced the dealer to involve Taylor in criminal activity.
Louisville’s top prosecutor disagreed to the allegations made by Taylor’s family lawyer. He said the document was a part of preliminary plea negotiations with a man charged with illegal drug trafficking and not an attempt to smear Taylor’s name.
On Monday, Sam Aguiar, Taylor’s family attorney posted a photo on social media. The post said it was a plea offer to Jamarcus Glover from prosecutors.
The document listed Taylor as a “co-defendant” in illegal activities till April 22, weeks after her death. It’s outrageous and inappropriate to wreck someone’s name after their death.
Jefferson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Wine said that the document was a “draft that was part of pre-indictment plea negotiations.”
On Monday Wine issued a statement saying Taylor was never a co-defendant in the case against Glover. Wine further added those drafts were never part of the court record and are not court documents. He did that out of respect for Breonna Taylor.
