SSCC #545-#546 – Cleveland

A federal jury awarded $13.2 million to a former housing authority security officer Friday after finding two Cleveland detectives fabricated or withheld evidence at his 2000 murder trial.

David Ayers, 56, who spent 11 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, and several jurors wept as the verdict against detectives Denise Kovach and Michael Cipo was read in U.S. District Court.

Eleven years of is life lost all because of the actions of two officers.  Remember though, these men should be trusted implicitly and considered to be anything other than human and capable of error.

Even better though is since the city is self insured, tax payers are footing the bill for the negligence of those two officers.

State Sponsored Criminal #545: Denise Kovach

#546: Michael Cipo

Because when your gut says someone did it, don’t bother doing your job, you can control the inputs to the system to satisfy your gut.  Innocence be damned!
