Who is J. Alexader Kueng’s Lawyer/Attorney
Kueng’s racially charged case is represented by Thomas C. Plunkett, one of the top-notch criminal defense lawyers in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
Hennepin County District Judge, Paul Scoggin, announced on 5th June 2020 that the bail amount for each convict is $1 Million without conditions or $750,000 with conditions. Thomas C. disagreed with the judge’s statement and asked the judge to review the facts.
Thomas Gray and Alexander Kueng’s attorney, Plunkett demanded the court to decrease the bail amount, considering their clients had been police officers for only three months before Floyd was accidentally killed.
Beginning his remark with paying deep condolences to the victim’s family, Tom Plunkett indicated that Kueng had behaved like a more experienced guy from all the other rookies, even though, he just became a full-fledged officer in Dec 2019. He joined the MPD in February 2019 and it is required for a trainee to spend at least one year in probation with an experienced Senior Police Officer before they become qualified field officers.
“At all times Mr. Kueng and Mr. Lane turned their attention to that 19-year veteran,” Plunkett said. “[Kueng] was trying — they were trying to communicate that the situation needs to be changed.”
“Alex joined the law enforcement as he believed he can make it a better place,” Tom added.
