Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announces appointment of special prosecutor in Addyston traffic stop

Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the appointment of Keith W. Schneider as the Special Prosecutor in the investigation into the February 10, 2012 Addyston traffic stop of Tiffany Becker.

Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Russell J. Mock signed the entry today appointing Mr. Schneider.

All future inquiries on this case should be referred to Mr. Schneider at 250 Civic Center Drive, Suite 500, Columbus, Ohio, 45315 (phone 614-224-1222).

Prosecutor Deters commented, “I do not know what Mr. Schneider may decide after he reviews all of the information on this matter and conducts his investigation, but I thought that it was important to have an attorney from out-of-town review this matter to make sure that the investigation is handled in the fairest possible manner. I would expect that it would take Mr. Schneider several weeks to complete his investigation.”
