The family of Breonna Taylor is rattled by the news of the shocking plea deal offered to her ex-boyfriend, according to their attorney, who adds … they're losing even more confidence in Kentucky authorities.
Ben Crump came on “TMZ Live” Tuesday to discuss the bombshell news about local prosecutors in Louisville seemingly trying to smear Breonna with a false claim she was as a criminal. That came out in a plea deal offered to her ex-BF, who was arrested on drug charges.
Crump says he's not buying prosecutors' claim the plea deal was merely a draft whipped up early on in negotiations. He tells us it's yet just another piece of evidence that local authorities were trying to sweep Breonna's killing under the rug from the very beginning.
Crump says the plea deal proves they were out to dirty up Breonna's character and says that's shaken her family's trust Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron will get them justice in the case.
He tells us bluntly — Breonna's family is losing faith in the process, and not only because Cameron still has not announced charges against the officer involved in Breonna's killing.
Crump tells us there's no reason a clear answer shouldn't be reached in the next couple weeks, and insists the family only wants one thing — equal treatment under the law. Plain and simple.
