“No, I won’t,” said Ann Bailey Smith, judge of the Jefferson County Circuit Court.
Hankison will not be able to keep firearms, which is a condition of his $ 15,000 bail.
The preliminary hearing is set for 28 October.
Charges against Hankison
Hankison fired through “a sliding glass door and a bedroom window,” according to a statement from Cameron’s office, and some of his shots pierced the wall of a nearby apartment, where three people lived, including a baby and a pregnant woman, said the Attorney General’s statement.
According to Cameron’s office, the three counts are for endangering the three people in the neighboring apartment, which also claims Hankison showed “extreme indifference to human life”.
“There is no conclusive evidence that the bullets fired from Detective Hankison’s weapon hit Ms. Taylor,” the statement read.
Unbridled danger is a class D crime, Kentucky’s lower class crime. If convicted of all three charges, Hankison faces between three and 15 years in prison.
The former detective plans to plead not guilty on Monday, defense attorney Stew Matthews told CNN, saying the evidence does not support the allegations.
Hankison was released Wednesday from the Shelby County Detention Center after paying a $ 15,000 bail.
Police say they identified themselves before bumping into the main door, and Cameron said a neighbor confirms the story. Other neighbors say they didn’t hear the officers identify as cops, but some of the neighbors told CNN they were sleeping and woke only after hearing gunshots.
When the officers broke down the door, Walker fired, hitting the sergeant. John Mattingly in the leg, police say. Walker said through his attorney that he didn’t realize the police were entering his apartment.
In addition to the 10 shots fired by Hankison, Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove fired 22 rounds, six of which hit Taylor, Cameron said, explaining that their use of force was justified because Walker fired first.
“How ironic and typical it is that the only charges made in this case were for shots fired in the apartment of a white neighbor, while no charges were made for shots fired in the apartment of the black neighbor or in Breonna’s residence”, Crump said in a statement. .
“This amounts to the most glaring disrespect for blacks, especially black women, killed by police in America, and it is indefensible, regardless of how Attorney General Daniel Cameron tries to justify it.”
The avenues of investigation are still open
Hankison was fired months ago, with interim LMPD chief Robert Schroeder telling the detective in a June 23 letter: “I find your conduct a shock to the conscience.”
