Instead, that review will be done by the Washtenaw County Prosecutor.
The transfer of the review of force comes after concerns from the public regarding the Jackson County Prosecutor who recently cleared a police officer in another use-of-force case in Kalamazoo.
East Lansing Police Officer, Andrew Stephenson, was accused of using excessive force during two separate arrests.
One arrest occurred in December 2019 and the other occurred in February of this year.
Stephenson’s attorney said that he passed a polygraph about the December arrest.
He could be charged with assault or misconduct in office.
