LAUSD Police Officer Accused Of Faked Shooting Wants Court Delay

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A former Los Angeles Unified school police officer accused of faking his own shooting earlier this year was back in court on Wednesday.

KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou reports the attorney for Jeffrey Stenroos asked the judge to delay trial proceedings by one month.

Attorney Tim Murphy asked for the delay in order to review additional documents from the county grand jury.

“We don’t have the transcripts yet,” Murphy said. “Those will be available in a couple of days.”

Stenroos has already plead not guilty for the incident in January that forced the lock-down of several San Fernando Valley schools and the deployment of hundreds of police officers.

Felony charges linked to the incident include workers compensation and insurance fraud, preparing and planting false evidence, and filing a false police report.

Murphy had no comment when asked about efforts by the city and the school district to seek a combined $420,000 in restitution and reimbursement for police deployment and other costs.
