NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Five current and former New Orleans police
officers have pleaded not guilty to a new indictment by a federal
grand jury earlier this month.
The Times-Picayune reports the officers entered their new pleas
The new indictment altered only one charge against former
officer David Warren, who is accused of fatally shooting a
31-year-old Algiers man after Hurricane Katrina.
As in the indictment handed up by a grand jury in June, Warren
is accused of depriving the civil rights of Henry Glover by
shooting him, a shot that allegedly resulted in the man's death. In
the new indictment, issued Aug. 6, prosecutors added five new words
to the charge.
