Posted by MHB Admin

A federal grand jury indicted Former Tukwila Police Officer Nicholas Hogan for alleged federal criminal civil rights violations for pepper spraying a man restrained to a gurney at Harborview Medical Center.  MHB lawyers Joe Shaeffer and David Whedbee had previously sued Officer Hogan for breaking a client’s elbow in an unprovoked use of force using an unauthorized “bent arm” takedown.  Tukwila later paid more than $50,000 to resolve that claim.
