COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The daughter of a Columbus police officer wounded in a 1972 shooting says she can't agree with a judge's decision to dismiss the case against the suspect.

 

Lori Cooper says no one should be able to shoot a police officer and not suffer the consequences.

 

Franklin County Judge Guy Reece on Thursday rejected a prosecutor's request that the case against shooting suspect Charles Hays be reopened.

 

Reece says that on balance the evidence shows Hays' right to a speedy trial was violated by authorities' failure to bring him back to Ohio in the years after the shooting.

 

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said a decision hasn't been made whether to appeal.
