Home violence accusations made in opposition to Sacramento Police Officer Justin Shepard had been initially recanted again in Could.
The practically three-year veteran of the division had been arrested after officers stated a home violence incident occurred on Could 6 whereas he was off-duty in Natomas. The alleged sufferer of the incident had “seen accidents.”
Days after Shepard’s arrest was introduced, his legal professional stated the accusations had been recounted.
On Could 10, 2021, the complainant absolutely recanted her allegations of home violence in opposition to
Sacramento Police Officer Justin Shepard. Additional she defined that her alleged accidents had been sustained in a separate accident and work-related occurrences fully unrelated to Officer Shepard.
We anticipate Officer Shepard to be exonerated as soon as the investigation has been concluded. Officer Shepard didn’t and would by no means have interaction in any acts of home violence in opposition to her or anybody. Whereas we perceive the reliable public curiosity on this matter, everyone seems to be entitled to a good investigation of alleged misconduct and due strategy of regulation. We respectfully request the general public and media to withhold judgment till this course of is concluded.
