The following was released on Tues. June 25, 2019:
Brandon Cook was sentenced this morning to one year, for a misdemeanor battery that he was convicted of by jury last week, in Allen Superior Court. We are proud of the outstanding efforts of law enforcement for their investigation and for locating Mr. Cook so that he could be held accountable for his actions. We are disappointed, on behalf of Mr. Fernandez’s family, with the jury’s verdict finding Cook not guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter. However, we will pursue justice and work on behalf of this community and for families whose loved ones have been victims of crime. We will continue to file and take difficult cases to trial and enforce the laws of the State of Indiana.
