Final arguments are expected to begin today in the criminal trail of Dymond Milburn, the 12-year-old Galveston resident who is accused of assaulting cops who tried to arrest her outside her home after mistaking her for a hooker.
We first wrote about her here, in a story that rocketed around the web. Galveston police got a call that three white prostitutes were working Milburn's neighborhood; the girl was outside her home dealing with a tripped breaker. Saying she was wearing provocative clothing, the cops tried to arrest her as she yelled for her hather. She was hospitalized.
They later arrested her at her school.
We wrote a follow-up item from the transcript of the first trial, which ended in a mistrial.
Attorneys for the police have told the current jury, KHOU reports, that all proper procedures were followed.
Milburn is facing assault charges; her attorney, Anthony Griffin, has also filed a federal suit over her arrest.
