Cop Caught on Video Punching Woman in the Face Found Not Guilty

A former Philadelphia Police lieutenant, who was on trial for punching a woman in the face, has been found not guilty. In the video posted on the Internet, Jonathan Josey is seen striking Aida Guzman in the face last September after the Puerto Rican Day Parade back. He was charged with simple battery. Since this was not a jury trial, a judge made the decision and he made the decision everyone expected him to make: He found the ex-cop not guilty, because, really, how often do officers get convicted of anything? Anywho, while issuing his ruling, judge Patrick Dugan said the video "didn't tell the whole story" and he blamed the media for sensationalizing the incident and playing it "a thousand times." Aida plans to file a civil lawsuit.
