MEMPHIS, Tenn. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump has been retained to represent the family of Jarveon Hudspeth, a 21-year-old Memphis man who was shot by a Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy following a traffic stop on June 24. Hudspeth died from his injuries shortly after he was shot.
Attorney Crump released the following statement:
“As the wound of Tyre Nichols’ death is still healing for Memphis, it is unthinkable that another family now has to live with the pain of losing a young man because of the actions of local police. In order to figure out what caused this traffic stop to escalate to Jarveon losing his life, we demand that local and state law enforcement are transparent and communicative with the family. The family and community must promptly see the footage of what exactly happened during this traffic stop as they cope with the incredible loss of this young man who had a promising future ahead of him. Jarveon Hudspeth deserved better. Memphis deserves better.”
