LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) – A former Louisville Metro Police officer who is charged with sexually abusing a teen in the department’s youth program faced a judge again on June 27.
Brandon Wood was in court for a pre-trial hearing on Wednesday morning.
LMPD's youth Explorer program was intended to help young people interested in law enforcement. At
issue in court on Wednesday was the internal review conducted by the city of Louisville of the handling of the case.
Attorneys on both sides want to see the information in the report because there could be interviews or statements important to the case.
"The mayor's office has created essentially an agent for the commonwealth and discovery rules entitles us to any information that is relevant to my case and my client’s case to be turned over,” Steve Schroering, Wood’s attorney, said.
Wood's attorney said he has never seen a mayor hire a private investigator to conduct a separate investigation from the police department.
