A 3rd Officer has yet to be charged in the Kelly Thomas Case, but sources say it's in the works.
Sources reported to KFI earlier today that Officer Joe Wolfe will be placed on criminal charges from the O.C. District Attorney's Office regarding his involvement in the Kelly Thomas beating that occured July 5, 2011. The D.A. has not commented on any details, and it is currently unclear as to when or what charges will filed against Wolfe. He will be the third officer to be brought up on criminal charges in this case.
Manual Ramos and Joe Wolfe were both part of the first unit to respond to the call that Slidebar placed on July 5, 2011. According to on-site surveillance taken that night, Wolfe was the first officer to strike a blow at Kelly Thomas using a baton shortly after Ramos had made threats against Thomas' safety.
Current charges have been levied against Officers Manual Ramos and Jay Cicinelli, who have both pled not guilty. Ramos faces a life sentence if convicted of second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter, while Cicinelli faces up to four years if convicted of involuntary manslaughter and use of excessive force.
