34 Criminal Cases Dismissed After Bodycam Footage Shows Police Planting Drugs

Dozens of cases have been dropped after a court reviewed footage recorded by a police body cam that appears to show an officer accidentally recording himself planting drugs while other officers look on.

The body cams used by these officers record video footage from 30 seconds before the officer presses the record button.

123 cases in total are under review with regards to this scandal.

One of the cases that was dismissed included a person who was the target of the drug plant and who has been in jail since January under $50k bail he could not post.
