The Public Safety Committee of the Louisville Metro Council will hear a presentation that led to a Resolution requesting the Kentucky Attorney General to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Former Louisville Police Department Officer Mark Handy.
“I believe it is important for the Committee to have a better understanding of this situation and we do not take the purpose of this Resolution lightly,” says Councilwoman Jessica Green (D-1), who chairs the Committee. “The public needs to have confidence in those who protect us and after this presentation we will decide what should be done regarding this request.”
The Committee will hear from Denny Butler, Louisville Police Detective, Retired and Mr. Edwin Chandler, the man wrongfully convicted for a crime he didn’t committee who was later exonerated.
Media reports in the last several weeks have indicated Handy was at the center of several homicide cases which resulted in convictions overturned.
