No Charges for Denver Sheriff’s Deput

In 2012, Deputy Brady Lovingier should have been charged with 3rd degree assault when he slammed inmate Anthony Waller into a courtroom wall in front of Denver County Court Judge Burd. Denver Chief Judge Michael Martinez called a hearing on Friday, hours before the statute of limitations rans out, to discuss the issue. The District Attorney’s office declined to prosecute, even in lieu of the courtroom video that shows an unprovoked and overly aggressive attack on a defendant as he stood at the podium addressing Judge Burd. This case is a prime example of how the DA’s office is too protective of the sheriff’s department. Video evidence of the incident shows Lovingier slamming the shackled and bound inmate into a window frame of the courtroom. Waller was dragged from the court room and suffered minor injuries. Lovingier served a 30-day suspension after the public safety director’s office determined he had used inappropriate force and had no justifiable reason to slam Waller into the wall. Deputy District Attorney Doug Jackson ultimately made the decision to not press charges on Lovingier, a decision Judge Martinez criticized on Friday. “I don’t for the life of me see how the prosecutor could make that assessment in light of the video,” said Martinez. This is an example of a dangerously close relationship between the police, and the district attorney. Police need to be prosecuted for their bad acts.
