Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Cosgrove fired the shot that killed Taylor – which Cameron says makes sense since Taylor’s boyfriend fired at the officers first.
The LMPD Board Hearing Notice says part of Cosgrove’s hearings take place in November. The second half of the hearings will begin on Monday and end on Wednesday.
In September 2020, Cosgrove discovered that Cosgrove was raising money on “Christian crowdfunding site” GiveSendGo to fund his retirement.
Detective Joshua Jaynes, who wrote the search warrant for the raid, was also fired at the same time as Cosgrove.
The Louisville police union at the time called the lawsuits “absurd.”
“Certainly there is no evidence in this case that LMPD policies and procedures have been violated to the extent that they warrant termination,” the Fraternal City Police Order said in a statement. “Interim Sheriff (Yvette) Gentry not only made the wrong decision, but sent an ominous message to every sworn officer of the Louisville Metro Police Department.”
Hankison is scheduled to go on trial in 2022. Endangering Wanton is a Class D felony, Kentucky’s lowest felony. If convicted on all three counts, Hankison faces between three years and 15 years in prison.
