Marcus Jeter faced a years-long prison sentence.
The New Jersey DJ, 30, was arrested in a 2012 traffic stop and charged with eluding police, resisting arrest and assault. Prosecutors insisted that Jeter do prison time.
“The first plea was five years,” Jeter said.
But after Jeter’s attorney, Steven Brown, filed a request for records, all of the charges against him were dropped, with dash-cam video apparently showing what really happened June 7, 2012. Now, the officers are facing charges.

Only by chance, was the actual event caught by a camera. Only by chance was an innocent man exonerated. Only by chance were corrupt officers exposed. What about the incidents where there is no camera rolling?
