NASHVILLE, Tennessee. – A prosecutor says the family members of an armed black man who was fatally shot from behind by a white Philadelphia police officer in July want to a lot of records made public in the officer’s first degree murder.
But Nashville officer Andrew Delke’s lawyer, David Raybin, responded Tuesday that the 25-year-old Daniel Hambrick, the family would not want to see what the defense has.
On Tuesday the lawsuit about whether the records should be sealed, Raybin said Attorney General Glenn Funk of the preference of the public submitted pretrial discovery documents would let the case be tried by the news. Raybin said the discovery lodge breaks with a state Supreme court ruling that Funk supported.
Funk said Nashville has exceptions cases involve children, victims or rape, but Delke case does not warrant the same protection of privacy.
A ruling is expected early next week.
