Ross’ family had called for disciplinary action for Sgt. Larry Moody and William Ortega, but an attorney representing the pair say the officers “followed policy and procedure.”
A grand jury declined to indict two officers Wednesday on charges related to the death of Diamond Ross, a 34-year-old woman who died of an overdose while in Dallas police custody in 2018.
Ross’ family and attorney had called for disciplinary action for the two officers involved in the case, Sgt. Larry Moody and William Ortega, who has since resigned and is now an officer in the Allen Police Department.
“We are pleased that the grand jury reviewed all the facts and followed the law. These officers followed policy and procedure,” said Jane Bishkin, an attorney representing Moody and Ortega.
