Two Ohio campus police officers won't face charges: prosecutor
Two University of Cincinnati police officers who were interviewed about the death of an unarmed black motorist at the hands of a fellow officer will not face charges, a prosecutor said on Friday.
Ray Tensing, 25, a former University of Cincinnati police officer, has been charged with murder in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose, who had been stopped for a missing license plate. Tensing, who had pleaded not guilty, was released from jail on bond on Thursday.
The two other University of Cincinnati officers, Phillip Kidd and David Lindenschmidt, were placed on administrative leave on Thursday. They testified in front of a Hamilton County grand jury, which decided not to press charges.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters said he agreed with the decision, and that the officers were cooperative and consistent in their statements.
"When the officers were specifically asked about what they saw and heard, their statements matched Tensing's body camera video," said Deters.
