Rumors have been circulating for weeks that officer Reginald Graham was on the DA's "secret list" of suspect cops who shouldn't be called on to testify in court cases because they have a history of dishonest behavior or racial bias. On Tuesday, that list was finally made public, and Graham's name was included.
The list says that Graham was "investigated by federal authorities for several alleged acts of corruption" due to misconduct that took place on November 1, 2013.
Mill's lawyer Joe Tacopina released a statement Tuesday and explained that the list will help Mill's legal battle. Tacopina said, "The release of the so-called 'Do Not Testify' list—which includes Mill’s arresting officer, Reginald Graham—supports everything in the motions filed by Mill and others wrongfully arrested by Officer Graham for post-conviction relief. We are hopeful that this is the final step in the process to get Mill and the other defendants released on bail and to have their convictions overturned."
