Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiller is charging Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby with a single count of manslaughter for the shooting death of Terence Crutcher.

 

The Tulsa County District Attorney’s office announced on Thursday that Officer Betty Shelby will face first degree manslaughter charge in the fatal shooting of Terence Crutcher.

 

Terence Crutcher was fatally shot by Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby after, a department spokesperson says, he did not comply with orders to put his hands up. Footage from the scene does show Crutcher with his hands in the air at one point.

 

The same footage also showed Crutcher dropped his hands, and leaned forward before the fatal shot was fired.

In filing the charge, Kunzweiller unusually took the step of (twice) strongly noting that people charged with a crime are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and noted the importance of allowing the facts to be heard in case.

 

It is going to be very interesting to see this case play out in a court of law, and see every detail presented in court.
