Drug Charges Dismissed For 15 Suspects Following Reynoldsburg Officer's Suicide

Mar 22, 2016

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announces that 15 suspects in drug cases involving heroin, cocaine and marijuana no longer face charges, after the death of former Reynoldsburg Police Officer Ty Downard. 

Downard killed himself while in the Delaware County  jail after being charged on federal counts of possession of drugs with intent to distribute.  O’Brien says that in light of those charges, it raises enough doubt on whether there could be a fair prosecution in the cases involving Downard.
