Albany-- One of the attorneys representing former Lee County Deputy Donnie Spillers says rumors are tainting the case. Pete Donaldson says a confidential settlement involving misconduct by Spillers had nothing to do with Spillers' job at the sheriff's department.
Donaldson also says the attorney representing Wesley Beaver's family should not ask the District Attorney to upgrade charges against Spillers.
Donaldson says neither side has all the evidence, and therefore shouldn't be talking in depth about the case. "He's waiting on the investigations to come along to report facts, the toxicology reports, things of that nature," said co-counsel Pete Donaldson. "The evidence in this case is nothing like the rumors are suggesting. Cecelia Cooper wouldn't have addressed this as an involuntary manslaughter case, if it was as Mr. Gamble suggested an assassination or anything to that effect."
Spillers was fired from the sheriff's department after fatally shooting 17-year- old Wesley Beaver. He's charged with involuntary manslaughter and he's accused of planting a knife at the scene.
Beaver's family is considering a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against Spillers, the Sheriff's office, and Lee County.
