Guillermo Raya Leon is facing charges of aggravated murder for shooting and killing Detective Jeremy Brown in July 2021. The detective was a late addition to an investigation into a recent firearms theft.
Attorneys representing the county argue the trial saw “a number of unduly prejudicial events” that skewed in the favor of three Latino workers who alleged multiple racist incidents in the county's public works department.
Clark County officials were accused of turning a blind eye to racist remarks and holding double standards in the workplace. The employees said they faced derogatory comments on the job “on an almost weekly basis.”
Clark County signed off on a three-year contract worth at least $17 million with a for-profit health care provider at its county jail and juvenile facility in Vancouver, Wash. WellPath is facing at least four active wrongful death cases in Oregon.
