March hearing on charges against Trooper Kenneth Franco.

Yesterday, I blogged about the charges against two State Troopers who were disciplined for giving news journalists photographs taken in 2009 of five other Troopers allegedly celebrating a Camden drug bust by waiving a Puerto Rican flag.

Today, I learned that a hearing regarding the charges against Trooper Kenneth Franco is going to be held by Administrative Law Judge Patricia M. Kerins next month.  It is not presently clear whether the hearing is on the charges themselves or on a subsidiary motion that relates to the charges.

Date: Monday, March 14, 2016
Hour: 10 a.m.
Place: Office of Administrative Law, 9 Quakerbridge Plaza, Mercerville.

Anyone who wishes to attend the hearing should contact Judge Kerin's office at 609-689-4043 the Friday before the hearing to ensure that it hasn't been postponed and to make sure that no restrictions have been placed on public access to the hearing.  Refer to OAL Docket No. POL 07406-2015-S.
