K-9 Attack Trial Goes to the Jury

RICHLAND, Wash.- Both sides are at rest in the K-9 attack civil trial against the City of Kennewick.

The case is now in the hands of the jury.

They talked for about five hours Monday, but couldn't come to a decision so they'll reconvene Tuesday morning.

Ken Rogers was asleep in the backyard of his friend's Kennewick home in July 2003 when a Kennewick Police k-9 mistook him for a suspect and attacked him.

Rogers also accuses three Kennewick officers and a Benton County Sheriff's Deputy of a brutal beating that's left him with debilitating injuries.

An attorney for the city calls it an honest mistake, but rogers is asking for more than two-million dollars in damages.

There's no indication right now how long it will take for the jury to reach a decision.

Lawyers for both sides didn't want to go on camera for fear of compromising the case.
