OMAHA, NEBRASKA, January 11, 2022 – An Omaha jury found former Nebraska State Trooper not guilty of using excessive force for an incident involving the arrest of a man in western Nebraska in 2016. Berry Law attorneys John S. Berry Jr. and Michael J. Wilson defended Lindsay Bixby, who faced up to ten years in prison for allegedly violating the man’s civil rights.
Attorney John Berry said: “Lindsay Bixby is two times a citizen. He served in the Nebraska National Guard and served for 13 years as a state trooper. We owe a great debt of gratitude to our first responders. While we must hold law enforcement accountable for their actions, we do so through the lens of the officer’s perception.”
