Feds Fighting Bid To Delay MPD Officers’ Trial

Federal prosecutors are objecting to a bid by Muncie police officers to delay their trial on charges stemming from charges of excessive force. The Star Press reports the officers — Chase Winkle, Jeremy Gibson, Joseph Krejsa and Corey Posey — are scheduled to stand trial Sept. 21 in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis. Lawyers for the officers now reportedly seeking to have the trial — already postponed three times — reset for January 2022.
