Cop Beating Trial Continues

Cop Beating Trial Continues

Posted: Updated:

Trial continued today in the case of several police officers accused of crossing the line.

During cross examination attorney Curtis Van de Veld questioned Owen Moni on statements he made during an interview with prosecution attorney Steven Leon Guerrero in which he identified by name three police officers that he say beat him. Moni denied making those statements, but the court will still have to decide on Tuesday how to proceed because it caused prejudice against two of the police officers, altering the evidence that was originally presented and making it so that the parties are unable to assert the same defenses.

The transcript of Leon Guerrero's interview with Moni is part of a document that the prosecution only gave defense attorneys yesterday. Vanderbilt admonished the late discovery, saying that "if disclosed timely it could have allowed for the parties to make motions to the court in a more thoughtful process."
