Crump will hold a Tuesday news conference with Leonard’s family
WOODBINE, Ga. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump and co-counsel Harry Daniels have announced their filing of an intent to sue the Camden County deputy who fatally shot Leonard Cure. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is conducting an investigation of the shooting – GBI’s 80th officer involved shooting investigation this year. Staff Sgt. Buck Aldridge, who shot Cure, was fired from a different Georgia police department in 2017 after throwing a woman to the ground during a traffic stop and handcuffing her.
Leonard spent more than 16 years in prison before he was exonerated for a 2003 robbery based on findings of “actual innocence,” according to The Innocence Project of Florida. Cure planned on pursuing a college degree and frequently spoke at colleges about his experience of being wrongfully convicted.
