Trial Continues in Cops Accused of Crossing the Line

Trial Continues in Cops Accused of Crossing the Line

Posted: Updated:

The prosecution was dealt a huge blow today when Jimmy Hadley took the stand in the criminal trial of a number of police officers.  Hadley is one of several detainees who alleges that he was beaten by police officers at the Dededo precinct late last year.

During cross-examination today Hadley admitted that he is a belligerent alcoholic, also testifiying on the stand that he doesn't always think it's important to tell the truth.  This is key to the defense's case as they contend Hadley, Owen Moni and others who were arrested in November of last year were highly intoxicated and lied about police officers assaulting them.

The trial continues in the district court on Wednesday.
