Trial for Man Kicked by Dover Cop Postponed

DOVER, Del. - A criminal trial for the man kicked unconscious by a Dover police officer has been postponed for a month.

The Delaware Department of Justice says 30-year-old Lateef A. Dickerson was supposed to appear in Superior Court in Wilmington Tuesday morning, but a state prosecutor asked for a continuance to have time to complete a DNA lab report.

Officials say the trial is now scheduled for June 16. 

The Department of Justice says Dickerson is accused of storing firearms stolen during a burglary in Maryland in a shed on Fields Terrace in Middletown. Dickerson is charged with two counts each of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person and receiving a stolen firearm, and one count of second-degree conspiracy. The Department of Justice says Dickerson faces 30 years to life in prison if convicted.

Dickerson got a lot of attention after an un-related incident on August 24, 2013 was caught on camera when a Dover Police Officer was seen kicking him in the head. The Dover Police Department released the dashboard camera footage earlier this month.

  • Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
