On this day, October 12, 2023...SPLIT VERDICT in McClain Trial

Adams County jurors in the death trial of Elijah McClain convicted Aurora police officer Randy Roedema of criminally negligent homicide and third-degree assault and acquitted officer Jason Rosenblatt.

Roedema's convictions equates to a Class 5 felony and a Class 1 misdemeanor. He could serve up to 3 years in prison.

McClain died in 2019 while walking from the store because a caller thought he looked suspect for wearing a ski mask. Officers stopped him, a struggle ensued, they placed him in a hold, other responders injected him with the drug Ketamine, and McClain died in the hospital days later.

AG Phil Weiser wrote this about the verdict, "Today’s verdict is about accountability; everyone is accountable and equal under the law. And hopefully today’s verdict is another step in the healing process for the Aurora community and the state. I recognize that some people may not agree with the verdict, but we all must respect the jury system, which is a pillar of our democratic republic. "
