Brett Hankison Indicted On Criminal Charges In Breonna Taylor Shooting

The indictment comes six months after Breonna Taylor was killed.
One of the officers involved in the shooting that led to the death of Breonna Taylor has been indicted by a grand jury.

In a report from the Louisville Courier Journal, former detective Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. Kentucky statutes define “wantonly” as:

Aperson acts wantonly with respect to a result or to a circumstance described by a statute defining an offense when he is aware of and consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk that the result will occur or that the circumstance exists. The risk must be of such nature and degree that disregard thereof constitutes a gross deviation from the standard of conduct that a reasonable person would observe in the situation.

Kentucky has two types of wanton endangerment: first-degree and second-degree. First-degree wanton endangerment is a Class D felony, punishable with fines of up to $10,000 and up to five years in prison.
