Ricci said, “As frightening as it is, all I have to say is you
I just have to tell the truth. “He added:” It is quite difficult, frightening
enough to do it. But now I’m here and I never thought of doing it. “
Hawk asked for a preliminary hearing on the evidence. This could happen in a few days or the case could be heard by a jury before then. The jury could recommend new charges, sending the case to the county court.
Ricci also said: “It became really physical and I wanted to do it
leave and he won’t let me go. “He added:” I am not afraid and I will

Cleveland police say the officer was suspended without pay as his case moves to court.
