investigation of auto theft)


SEATTLE, Wash. - The second assault trial for a King County sheriff's deputy who beat a 15-year-old girl in a SeaTac jail cell is set for June 1.
     
The date was set Tuesday at a hearing in King County Superior Court.
     
A mistrial was declared last month in the first trial of Paul Schene with one juror refusing to go along with others who wanted to convict.
     
Schene says he was following training to subdue the girl in November 2008 after the car theft suspect kicked a shoe at him. The beating was caught on jail surveillance video.
     
Schene was fire last September for using excessive force.

Mistrial in case of former King County deputy

(January 22, 2010)

A King County Superior Court judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a former sheriff's deputy who was videotaped beating a 15-year-old girl in a jail cell, after jurors said they were unable to reach a verdict.
     
The 12-member jury had been deliberating since Wednesday afternoon.
     
Former deputy Paul Schene displayed no visible reaction as the judge declared the mistrial Friday. Prosecutors quickly announced that they will retry the case.
     
Schene was charged with fourth-degree assault for kicking, tackling and punching 15-year-old Malika Calhoun after she kicked her shoe toward him as he was exiting a holding cell in SeaTac in November 2008.
     
Schene said he followed training in restraining the car theft suspect. He was fired last September from his job as a deputy.
     
Prosecutors say the video speaks for itself.
