Judge bars Greeley police officer body cam video release to public despite new law

FOX31: A Weld County judge has granted a police officer’s request to prevent the release of body cam evidence before his trial.

Greeley Police Officer Ken Amick was charged with second-degree assault/strangulation on June 28 after he allegedly put a suspect in a chokehold on June 7.

Under a new Colorado statute signed into law July 6, officer body cam is supposed to be released within 21 days anytime a complaint is filed against an officer. The law does allow prosecutors to delay the release up to 45 days if a criminal case in pending, like in the Amick case.
