Testimony Ends in Danziger Bridge Case
On Friday, prosecutors called several rebuttal witnesses to the stand, including a woman named Lakeisha Smith, a former New Orleans resident who now lives in Texas, who was listed in the initial police report as having witnessed the shootings.
Prosecutors alleged Detective Arthur Kaufman invented Smith and another civilian witness listed in the report. But earlier in the trial, Kaufman's attorney called to the stand a private detective, who said he had found Smith, living in Texas.
On Friday, Smith said she did not witness any shootings on the bridge.
