Rochester, NY — The grand jury will not seek accusations against police officers in a video of a body camera naked and handcuffed on the streets of the city until he stopped breathing last winter.
New York Attorney General Letitia James Announced the decision Tuesday.
The death of a 41-year-old black man in March last year caused a nightly protest in Rochester, NY, after the video was released almost six months later.
A video released on September 4 shows that Prud was handcuffed and stripped naked with a spit hood on his head as police officers pressed his face against the ground.
Seven police lawyers, who were suspended due to Proud’s death, said they were strictly following training.
The county coroner cited the method of death as a murder.
