“My client wants to make sure the truth comes out,” Kevin Glogware, attorney for the anonymous grand jury, told reporters.
Glogavar said on Tuesday that it has a customer status, “which was introduced [to jurors] Not being made public. “
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Monday night that he only recommended the grand jury to endanger the scarcity, with no officer charged with Taylor’s murder.
Cameron said in a statement that the prosecution presented all the evidence, although the facts show that force was not used by the two officers as they were fired.
“For that reason, the only charge recommended was to risk the shortage,” Cameron said.
Ben Krump, representing the Taylor family, and two other attorneys said the grand jury’s claim supports their claim that Cameron “clearly failed to present a comprehensive case in support of justice for Brona.”
“We fully support the call to release the transcript of the full proceedings as the only way to find out how the evidence was presented and how the grand jury instructions led to this result,” prosecutors said in a statement Tuesday.
In addition to the release of recordings and transcripts, the jury also asked the court to “make a mandatory declaration,” according to court documents obtained by CNN that the grand jury has the right to disclose information. Details about that process and the details of the proceedings, in particular, the motion said Cameron was asked to avoid the fear that he would try to use contempt of court cases in a public disclosure case.
Glagovar said Cameron’s initial public statements “put a lot of responsibility on the actions of the grand judges” but his latest announcements “tried to walk behind it.” He said the jury contacted his office fee on Friday afternoon and described his pace as very unusual in his 15 years of practice.
Glogor said Cameron’s public statements leave unanswered questions about what evidence was presented before the grand jury and whether charging recommendations were made.
CNN wanted a comment from Cameron.
The office of Louisville Mayor Greg Fisher on Tuesday reiterated its intention to release the police department’s investigation file as soon as possible “without endangering anyone. [ongoing] Criminal investigation. “
AG eventually agreed to release the recording
The attorney general initially refused to release the grand jury transcripts relating to the Taylor case, despite being invited to do so by the mayor of Louisville, the governor of Kentucky and the attorney for Taylor’s family.
But Cameron announced Monday evening that he would abide by the judge’s ruling, which ordered the addition of a recording of the grand jury’s presentation to the court’s case file.
Cameron had previously said that releasing the release would interfere with other investigations. “We stand by the belief that such a publication could compromise an ongoing federal investigation and have unintended consequences, such as poisoning the jury pool,” he reiterated on Monday.
“The grand jury is meant to be a secret body,” Cameron said in a statement emailed to CNN from his office.
“It is clear that the public interest in this case will not allow that to happen. As special counsel, it is the moral duty of our team not to exempt the recording from the grand jury proceedings, and we rely on our belief that such a publication can compromise an ongoing federal investigation and There could be unintended consequences, such as poisoning the jury pool. “
“Despite these concerns, we will comply with the judge’s order to release the recording on Wednesday,” Cameron said.
Judge Ann Bailey Smith said Cameron’s statement came as recordings and all search documents could not be shared between the parties alone. Smith oversaw the arrest of former Louisville Police Det. Brett Hankison on three counts of putting first-degree warrants at risk in the wake of the incident that led to Taylor’s death.

Her torso, waist, thighs and legs were injured in the shooting, the report said, adding that the cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds. The blood sample was tested negative for alcohol and drug use, the report said.
Cameron said last week that the single, fatal shot was not fired by Hison Nixon.
Taylor’s family and others have vowed to release the grand jury transcript.

Hankis pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday.
