COURTESY: BERKELEY COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT
A West Virginia prosecutor has released a police dashcam video of a 16-year-old boy being beaten by officers during a November traffic stop.
Authorities originally denied media requests for the video, citing the investigation.
Two state troopers and a sheriff’s deputy were fired in January. Another deputy who was fired recently got his job back.
One trooper was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday on one count of deprivation of rights under color of law — language used to describe crimes committed by police officers while on duty.
The indictment accuses Trooper Michael Kennedy of using excessive force resulting in bodily injury.
