On March 24, 2015, in response to a request from the second special prosecutor, the Division of Drug and Crime Control provided the case file to that special prosecutor. On Dec. 18, 2015, the second special prosecutor charged Trooper Piercy with involuntary manslaughter, at which time the Patrol put Trooper Piercy on leave without pay.
The charge for which Piercy was arrested is a mere accusation and is not evidence of guilt. Evidence in support of the charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
