Judge Jane C. Barwick believes that Garrett Rolfe does not pose a threat to the community, nor is it a risk of escape. Rolfe will have to wear an ankle monitor, will not be able to possess any weapons, and must hand over his passport.
“[Officer Rolfe] It has been shown that he poses a danger to the community. Miller said: “He stood on the way my husband kicked. I can only imagine how he felt and his fears at that time. It was not enough to just kill him. When they could do something to save him, they stood there.”
Attorneys L. Chris Stewart and Justin Miller of the Brooks family expressed disappointment with the ruling.
They said: “Although Reshad Brooks̵7;s family is disappointed today that his killer was awarded a bond, they know that this is only a long-term step to seek Reshad’s justice,” they said.
Rolfe was charged with a felony, five counts of severe assault, four counts of swearing out of office and one property crime.
In the court documents previously submitted, Rolf’s lawyer said that Rolf shot and killed 27-year-old Brooks, who was legally justified and self-defense.
The video of the incident on June 12 was described by the Department of Defense as the most valuable evidence in the case, showing Brooks running away and pointing Taser behind him when Rolf shot and died.
Brosnan was accused of serious attack and was released to sign a guarantee.
The Ministry of Defence presents a 28-letter letter
In the court on Tuesday, Rolle’s legal team submitted 28 character letters on his behalf, saying that he was professional, trustworthy and a pillar of the community. They said that the former official was a student of Georgian native Kennesaw State University and there was no risk of flying. Rolfe’s team has asked the judge to provide a $50,000 signature deposit.
Given that Rolle has no job or no income, the state questioned Rolle’s relationship with the community and flight risk assessment. The state requires that if a guarantee is granted, the investigator should be provided with the mobile phone password of Rolle.
In addition, the legal team of Rolfe asked not to broadcast “inciting calls” bearing racial monikers in court. Lawyers in Georgia said they intend to use the phone as evidence.
In addition, the prosecutor pointed out that the state executed a search warrant on the phone of Rolf and another police officer on the scene and obtained records from the two police officers. The phone records allegedly showed multiple texts between Rolfe and four different police department officials.
The state stated that Rolfe refused to hand over the password of the mobile phone.
Rolf’s lawyer said in court documents that he should be given a reasonable security deposit because he needed the opportunity to assist his lawyer in preparing for the case.
His lawyer said they have provided the Georgia Bureau of Investigation with three mobile phone videos taken by witnesses.
