Attorney General Daniel Cameron on Friday released the much-anticipated recordings of the grand jury proceedings in the deadly shooting of Breonna Taylor involving three Louisville police officers earlier this year in March.
The family of Breonna Taylor demanded that the tapes be released in a press conference following the announcement that only 1 officer would be charged. None of the officers were charged for the shooting because it was deemed justified.
The audio is an estimated 20 hours long. The judge had ordered for the recording to be released Wednesday, but Cameron requested a delay earlier this week so his office could have more time to protect people’s names and other personal information before it was made public. The judge instead gave his office until noon Friday.
“The Grand Jury audio recording is more than 20 hours long, and our office filed a motion to request additional time to redact personally identifiable information of witnesses, including addresses and phone numbers”
A member of the grand jury filed a motion to have the transcripts released and for jurors to be allowed to speak publicly about the proceedings, which are typically kept private.
The juror has suggested that Cameron may have misrepresented to the public the case he presented to the panel, according to a lawyer for the grand juror.
Kevin Glogower, attorney for the anonymous grand juror, this week accused Cameron of “damage control.” Glogower said it’s important for the public to know what charging options were presented to the grand jury and whether charges were recommended in connection with Taylor’s killing.
