The police officer who punched Miyekko Durden-Bosley in the back of a squad car while she was handcuffed will face no charges. No Durden-Bosley, who goes by Koko, has spoken out for the first time.
Durden-Bosley told K5 News she still suffers from headaches that are a byproduct the punch last June that broke her eye socket and caused a concussion.
"I definitely do think he should have been charged with a crime," Durden-Bosley said. "It just hurts. It devastates."
Last week, however, the King County Prosecutor's Office announced it would not be filing criminal charges against him.
"While Officer Shepherd may have had other options or alternatives, we have concluded that we would be unable to prove that Officer Shepherd's use of force was criminal," prosecutors said
