As far as eluding the officers, Jeter pulled over as soon as he saw the flashing lights. Before the tape was produced, Jeter was facing five years in prison. The Bloomfield police department’s internal affairs division had “investigated” Jeter’s case before the tape was produced and had found no wrongdoing by the officers involved.
After the film was viewed, Jeter was cleared of all the alleged charges against him. The officers involved, however, are facing serious charges. Officer Orlando Trinidad, the most prominently featured policeman in the video, was charged with aggravated assault, falsifying reports, conspiracy and official misconduct; he has pleaded not guilty.
Police Officer Sean Cotter was charged with conspiracy, falsifying reports and official misconduct; he has also pleaded not guilty.
