Bland Evidence To Be Released by January

Sandra Bland

A federal judge has given officials in Waller County, Texas until January to turn over evidence related to the traffic stop, jailing and eventual death of Sandra Bland, Associated Press reports.

U.S. District Judge David Hittner’s order is in response to a subpoena from attorneys who filed a wrongful death suit on behalf of Bland’s mother.

The subpoena, served last month called for the submission of all reports and recordings from Prairie View police related to the Bland incident be released by Nov. 10.

Hittner heard arguments earlier this week, and his order grants more time for authorities to gather all evidence.
