DCist: $10 million lawsuit in DC police officer case, family represented by The Cochran Firm, D.C. attorney Scott Lucas

The popular Washington, D.C. blog DCist recently covered the $10 million lawsuit filed by the family of a minor who was allegedly victimized by a Metropolitan D.C. police officer. The family is represented by D.C. injury attorney Scott Lucas. Former D.C. police officer Marc Washington was charged with taking illicit photos of an underage girl. Washington later committed suicide after charges were filed against him. The suit seeks $10 million over the alleged assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, malicious trespass, false imprisonment and negligent supervision and training.

The mother of a 15-year-old girl who a D.C. police officer allegedly forced her to strip then photographed her has sued the city for $10 million.

On November 30, 2013, Tamikquela J. Cherry reported her daughter, identified as "D.C." in a court filing, missing with the Metropolitan Police Department. Officer Marc Washington was assigned to the case. Cherry's daughter returned home on December 1, 2013, and Cherry notified MPD of her return.

Cherry alleges that Washington came to the house "under the guise and pretense of concluding his 'investigation.'" He allegedly asked to speak to Cherry's daughter alone and he took her into a back bedroom. There, Cherry alleges, he asked "D.C." to remove her clothing so he could photograph "scares, injuries and tattoos."
