Closing arguments are expected Monday in the trial of a girl accused of assaulting a police officer, but her defense attorney claims police are to blame because officers mistook the 12-year-old for a prostitute.
On Aug. 22, 2006, police were dispatched to the 2200 block of 24th Street to investigate three white prostitutes propositioning a white man and a black man selling drugs.
12 year old goes outside in short shorts to check breaker box. Plainsclothes policemen on the lookout for 3 white prostitutes grab her and abduct her under charges of prostitution. She fights to not be taken in.
Luckily the jury is deadlocked:
A deadlocked jury failed to reach a verdict Monday in the case of a girl accused of assaulting a police officer after officers allegedly mistook her for a prostitute.
After eight hours of deliberation, a jury of three men and three women told Judge Roy Quintanilla they were hopelessly deadlocked in the case charging Dymond L. Milburn, now 15, in the Aug. 22, 2006, assault of Galveston police officer David Roark.
