HALIFAX, VA (WWBT) - A federal prosecutor says he will not pursue federal criminal civil rights charges against three Virginia police officers who used stun guns multiple times on a black man before his death.
U.S. Attorney John Fishwick Jr. said Thursday that an investigation into death of Linwood Lambert Jr. found insufficient evidence to prove that the three officers violated federal law by willfully using unreasonable force against the man.
Lambert was tased 20 times by South Boston Police before he died on May 4, 2013.
