The Evidence in the Case
Diane Valden reports today in Columbia Paper about another case dismissed because the Hudson Police Department reportedly failed to turn over key evidence: "Judge tosses new case after HPD evidence error." The case in question this time is that against Kerwin A. Jones, who allegedly fired a handgun into a group of people standing in front of 34 North Fifth Street on Memorial Day 2012. The first paragraph of Valden's story reads in part: ". . . the Hudson Police Department took another hit for mishandling evidence, with the mayor expressing outrage at the second such problem that has come to light in the last two months."
