Kentucky AG to Release Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Tapes as Juror Calls for Information to Be Made Public

HeadlineSep 29, 2020

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron agreed Monday to release the recording of grand jury proceedings in Breonna Taylor’s case to the court on Wednesday after a judge ordered the release.

Earlier on Monday, an anonymous grand juror sued in order to unseal the court transcripts, accusing Daniel Cameron of using the grand jury “as a shield to deflect accountability and responsibility for those decisions.” The juror also said jury members should be granted the right to speak freely about the case and be allowed to share “any potential charges and defendants presented or not presented.”

This all comes as Vice News revealed interviews with Louisville SWAT team members show they raised concerns with the deadly raid that killed Breonna Taylor on March 13 — both before and after it happened.

On Monday, Brett Hankison pleaded not guilty to three counts of wanton endangerment for shooting into the walls of Breonna Taylor’s neighbor. He and other officers involved have not been charged for killing Breonna Taylor after raiding her home.
