“My client wants to make sure the truth comes out,” Kevin Gollgower, an anonymous grand juror’s lawyer, told reporters.
Glogawar said his client’s position on Tuesday was “what was presented [to jurors] Not being publicly disclosed. ”
Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Monday night that he had recommended desirable distress charges only to the grand jury, with no officers being charged with Taylor’s murder.
Cameron said in a statement that the prosecution presented all the evidence, even though the use of the allegations leveled by the two officers on the force of fact was not “justified” as they were fired.
“For this reason, the only fee recommended was danger,” Cameron said.
Ben Crump and two other attorneys representing the Taylor family said the grand juror’s claim supports their claim that Cameron “clearly failed to present a comprehensive case supporting justice for Bryona.”
The lawyers said in a statement on Tuesday, “We support the call to release the entire proceedings in full, to know what evidence was presented and in what grand jury instructions were given.”
In addition to the recording and release of the transcription, the junior, according to court documents obtained by CNN, also asked the court to “make a binding declaration” that the grand juror had the right to disclose the information. It asked for information on the process and details of the proceedings, specifically, the motion stated, to avoid the apprehension that Cameron would try to exercise the court’s powers of contempt in a public disclosure case.
Glogower said Cameron’s initial public statements “placed a lot of responsibility at the feet of grand gamblers” but his recent announcements “attempted to walk that back.” He said that Juar contacted his office on Friday afternoon and described his pace as extremely unusual in his 15 years of practice.
Glogower said Cameron’s public statements leave unanswered questions about what evidence was presented to the grand jury and whether the charging recommendations were made.
CNN was seeking comment from Cameron.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fisher’s office on Tuesday reiterated his intention to release the police department’s investigative file “without endangering anyone.” [ongoing] criminal investigation. ”
AG eventually agreed to release the recording
The attorney general initially refused to release grand jury tapes related to the Taylor case, despite mounting public calls by Lewis Meyer, the Kentucky governor, and Taylor’s family lawyers to do so.
But Cameron announced on Monday evening that he would comply with the decision of a judge, who would order the grand jury presentation to be filed in the court case file.
Cameron had previously stated that the release of the presentation would hamper other investigations. He reiterated that Monday, “We stand by our belief that such a release could compromise the ongoing federal investigation and have unintended consequences such as poisoning the jury pool.”
“The grand jury means a secret body,” Cameron said in an emailed statement from his office to CNN.
“It is clear that the public interest in this case is not allowed to happen. As a special prosecutor, our team has a moral obligation not to release recordings from grand jury proceedings, and we stand by our convictions for a release. Could compromise ongoing federal investigations and have unintended consequences such as poisoning the jury pool. ”
“Despite these concerns, we will comply with the judge’s order to release the recording on Wednesday,” Cameron said.
Cameron’s statement came after Judge Ann Bailey Smith stated that the recording and all discovery documents could not be shared only between the parties. Smith inspected the name of a former Louisville police officer. Brett Hackison in three cases of first-degree wanton crisis in connection with the incident that led to Taylor’s death.
