Attorneys for Family of Javier Ambler Release Statement on the Decision to Jointly Prosecute Officers Involved in Fatal Shooting
AUSTIN, TEXAS – National civil rights attorneys Ben Crump, Antonio Romanucci, and Jeff Edwards released the following statement today on the decision by Williamson County prosecutors to join the Travis County District Attorney’s prosecution against officers in the fatal police shooting of Javier Ambler:
"The Ambler family is encouraged by the now combined prosecution of both Williamson and Travis counties for the senseless and very public death of Javier Ambler by deputies as the reality TV cameras rolled. Today's announcement that charges will be streamlined for both counties jointly to prosecute is one we see as a more efficient — and ideally expeditious — path to justice."
