DOVER, Del. – A trial has been scheduled for November for a Delaware police corporal charged with assault.
The News Journal reports (http://delonline.us/1BixBeL ) that a Nov. 30 trial has been set for Dover Cpl. Thomas Webster, who is charged with second-degree assault. Last month, police released a 2013 dashcam video showing Webster kicking Lateef Dickerson in the face when he was on his hands and knees. Police say Dickerson was knocked unconscious and suffered a broken jaw.
Webster has pleaded not guilty. He has been suspended without pay and is free on $5,000 unsecured bail.
After a grand jury failed to indict Webster last year, the ACLU of Delaware sued the city and police department and recently requested communications between the Delaware attorney general's office and Dover city officials regarding the case.
