Five New Haven police officers charged in an incident that paralyzed a man faced a judge for the first time today.
The judge transferred the cases to a different courthouse because prosecutors felt there are too many conflicts of interest, as the officers work in this courthouse.
Randy Cox was paralyzed inside a New Haven police transport van with no seatbelts in June 2022.
Body camera video shows the five officers dragging Cox out of the van despite his pleas that his neck was broken.
Last month, Cox's family expressed outrage that the officers are only facing misdemeanor charges.
Cox remains in a rehab center under 24-hour care.
Cox's lawyer said he will be at any hearing at which these officers discuss a plea deal or accelerated rehabilitation, which would allow them to clear their records after a certain time.
The officers will be back in court in Jan. 11.
