Danziger Bridge Jurors Hear Secretly Taped Conversation
On Monday, prosecutors played excerpts from a three-hour conversation in which Sgt. Robert Gisevius hinted at a conspiracy to cover-up the police shootings on the Danziger Bridge and took shots at his colleagues.
"What weak link could sink the ship?" he asked aloud, while naming other officers.
The conversation, at a bar, was secretly recorded by Jeffrey Lehrmann, a former NOPD officer who was cooperating with the government and who has pleaded guilty to knowing about, but not reporting a felony. Lehrmann has been sentenced to three years in prison.
