While waiting on the results of an investigation into the death of EMT worker Breonna Taylor, prosecutors offered her ex-boyfriend a plea deal to implicate Taylor as a part of an “organized crime syndicate,” according to The Hill.
Lead attorney Sam Aguiar, who is representing Breonna Taylor’s family, revealed that the Louisville prosecutors offered her ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, who is facing multiple drug-related charges, a plea deal if he were to say that she was a part of the deal. Glover turned down the plea deal and pled not guilty to the charges against him.
Aguiar posted on his Facebook page about the prosecutor’s failed attempt to have Glover become complicit with their attempts to cover up the crime that was committed against Taylor.
“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. Umm…when was Breonna Taylor ever a co-defendant? 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). This goes to show how desperate Tom Wine (in case anyone was wondering whose office distributed one-sided information…) is to justify the wrongful search of Breonna Taylor’s home, her killing and arrest of Kenneth Walker”
Thomas B. Wine, the prosecutor who recused himself, released a statement saying that Taylor was never a defendant in the Glover case and had an explanation for what Aguiar posted.
“The plea sheet that Sam Aguiar posted on Facebook was a draft that was part of pre-indictment plea negotiations with Mr. Glover and his attorney. Those drafts were never part of the court record and are not court documents. We were aware of the information in the warrants as well as the jail phone calls where Mr. Glover implicated Ms. Taylor in his criminal activity. When I was advised of the discussions, out of respect for Ms. Taylor, I directed that Ms. Breonna Taylor’s name be removed. The final plea sheet provided to Mr. Glover’s counsel is attached and clearly does not include Ms. Taylor as a Co-Defendant. This plea sheet was emailed on July 21, 2020 to Mr. Glover’s attorney. The offer was withdrawn when Mr. Glover failed to surrender himself to court.”
