Memo Warned Oklahoma Sheriff About Deputy Training Concerns

Tuesday, 28 Apr 2015 06:46 PM

Lawyers for a Tulsa man shot dead by a reserve deputy have released a document indicating an Oklahoma sheriff was told directly about concerns the volunteer's training record may have been falsified.

The 2009 memo appears to be initialed by Sheriff Stanley Glanz, but doesn't say when it was prepared or sent to him. Glanz declined comment Tuesday.

Robert Bates is charged with second-degree manslaughter in the April 2 death of Eric Harris. Lawyers for Harris' family released the two-page memo several days after releasing a report in which Bates' supervisors questioned his training.

The document released Tuesday is the first indicating Glanz was directly notified about Bates' performance.

The memo's author says she was ordered to prepare a certificate for Bates for training she didn't believe he'd completed.
