There has been a setback in the wrongful death case of the family of Byron Carter Junior against the local police department. The judge did not let some of the evidence to go to the jury.

According to My Fox Austin, “A federal judge didn’t allow memos by the offices of the Police Monitor and the Citizens Review Panel to be entered as evidence for the jury to consider … The memos recommended Austin police officer, Nathan Wagner’s termination because he violated department policy by using excessive force.

“They also said Wagner racially profiled two black men, Carter and Lee Webb. Both Officers Wagner and Jeffrey Rodriguez also testified to what happened May 30th, 2011.”
