The state trooper involved in the Sandra Bland case has been indicted on a misdemeanor charge of perjury, according to NBC DFW. Bland died in a Texas jail cell this summer after being arrested following an altercation with police. Bland was originally stopped for a traffic violation, and it is the officer that pulled her over that was indicted. Bland’s mother has been vocally disappointed in the charges that officer faces. She and other members of Bland’s family have filed a civil rights lawsuit in hopes of finding answers regarding Sandra’s arrest and subsequent death.
