Clackamas County Grand Jury exonerates deputies in March 4th fatal shooting.
(CLACKAMAS, Ore.) - The Clackamas County District Attorneys Office says a Grand Jury has exonerated two Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies involved in the fatal shooting of a 68-year old Canby man March 4th.
The independent Grand Jury heard the testimony over the deputy-involved fatal shooting today.
Clackamas County Deputy District Attorney, John Wentworth, says Clackamas Deputy Brian Lister and Deputy Jesse Ashby, were cleared of any criminal wrong doing in the fatal shooting of 68-year old Hubert Henkel.
The deputies approached the residence at 10:30 p.m. that night, over warrants related to "manufacturing" (growing), possession and delivery of marijuana.
80-year old Marjorie Frances Crawford was arrested on a warrant for charges she and Mr. Henkel were both wanted for, relating to growing, possessing and providing cannabis to another person.
The 80-year old woman was lodged in the Clackamas County Jail for the related felony charges of Manufacturing of a controlled substance; Delivery of a controlled substance and Possession of a controlled substance.
I interviewed Clackamas County Prosecutor John Wentworth shortly after receiving word of this development; the interview is posted below.
