DURHAM, N.C. — The Durham County District Attorney’s office has dropped all charges against Stephanie Nickerson.
The 25-year-old Navy veteran had faced resisting arrest and assaulting an officer charges in an October incident in which she claims an officer repeatedly punched her in the head and face – leaving her with a broken nose, a black eye and swollen lips.
Nickerson’s case has drawn considerable community attention, and prompted multiple protests in front of the Durham Police Department. Supporters have called for the officer involved to be removed from duty and criminally charged.
