Shot 16 Times By Cops, Innocent Man Files $20-Million Suit

Lawyers for Dustin Theoharis, an Auburn man who was shot 16 times in his bed by a sheriff’s deputy and a DOC officer, say they are filing a $20 million lawsuit against the state Department of Corrections. It comes on the heels of a scathing report calling for change in the King County Sheriff’s Office. “Dustin just had his 12th surgery to reconstruct his jaw, which was basically shattered from one of the bullets,” Eric Heipt, one of the attorneys for Theoharis, said Wednesday.
