New documents posted by the attorney for Breonna Taylor’s family allegedly show that prosecutors offered her ex-boyfriend a plea deal in which he would have to implicate her as part of his drug-dealing operation.
Louisville-based attorney Sam Aguiar, who is representing Taylor’s family in a civil lawsuit against the three police officers who fatally shot her earlier this year during a no-knock raid, posted photos of the documents on Facebook that show ex-boyfriend Jamarcus Glover was offered a deal in which he would have to implicate Taylor in his crimes.
“Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine tried to give the Elliott Ave. defendants a plea deal on July 13 which would have identified Breonna Taylor as a ‘co-defendant’ for actions related to the arrests on April 22, 2020,” Aguiar writes.
Police originally justified the no-knock raid on the apartment where Taylor lived because Glover had purportedly used it as a place to store drugs. No drugs were found in Taylor’s apartment, however, and Glover has insisted that she was not part of his operation.
“When was Breonna Taylor ever a co-defendant?” Aguiar asks. “And oh by the way, the cops killed her a month and a half before April 22 and four months to the day before the date of this effort to get a plea deal (which was rejected).”
