Federal Authorities Announce Closure Without Prosecution of San Antonio Civil Rights Investigation Involving the Arrest of Rogelio Carlos

U.S. Attorney Richard L. Durbin, Jr., announced today that after a lengthy and comprehensive investigation, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, together with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have concluded that there is not sufficient evidence to prosecute San Antonio Police Officers based on the arrest of Rogelio Carlos in May 2014.  The investigation did not develop sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that police officers knowingly and willfully used excessive force to deprive Mr. Carlos of his civil rights. The investigation has been closed.
