Fouads Kaddys Killer back at work before the Grand Jury even hears testimony

Back to work?
Officer Bergin of the Sandy Police Department has been back to work for a week now, according to the Gresham Outlook.

He has been doing "desk duty" doing paperwork and reviewing background checks for potential reserve officers.

Therefore, it looks like they already thought they knew the outcome of a Grand Jury before they even met to decide whether an indictment is handed down. Of course, this was before they knew that Fouad Kaady was Zaki's cousin. How could an officer be checking background information for potential officers when he has been charged with a most serious crime? How do people in Sandy live under these people?
WOW! It really amazes me. We found three more witnesses Saturday in Sandy, eyewitnesses who have not been called.

Please if you were a witness, it is too late to have you served to come testify, come down to the Clackamas County courthouse Monday morning and seek Shannon Connall.

Mr. Groovy

What serious crime has Bergin been charged with, and by whom?

Call the DA of Clackamas County 17.Oct.2005 19:50

Is not that a strange question, because you would think the victim's family would have been updated and told these things and many others. I can tell you this; a Grand Jury would not be meeting at all, if there were no charging instrument

There does not have to be a charging instrument to convene a grand jury. In fact, in cases like this, the grand jury becomes the charging instrument.

There have been no charges filed in this case. If there are charges to be filed, they will be determined by the grand jury.
