From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
City Councilwoman Karen Jackson said authorities have dismissed their case against her 15-year-old son, who was charged June 27 with resisting and interfering with the officers after fleeing from police investigating the theft of a volleyball.
But, Jackson said, the Internal Affairs complaint she filed alleging those cops used excessive force, including a Taser shock, on her son, Gabriyel Fraser, is still pending.
Jackson on Tuesday provided Hearst Connecticut Media with a copy of an “erasure of record” order, issued earlier that day by Superior Court Judge Robert Clark, for Fraser. Jackson said prosecutors dismissed the charges against her son in late September.
Juvenile court records are not publicly available and the erasure of record order does not detail why the case was dismissed. Jackson has used her son’s name in discussions about the case with Hearst.
