I'm watching this trial. I don't understand the defense's assertion that Melendez was following Dent all the way from the budget inn. Anyone else watching?"If Jodi's lips are moving...if her pen is moving...then she lie, lie, lies!"

William Melendez, who was fired from the Inkster Police Department in April following the Jan. 28 incident, was found guilty of misconduct in office and assault with intent to do great bodily harm.
On a separate count of strangulation, he was found not guilty...
He faces up to 10 years in prison.

Earlier this month:
Painting a lurid picture of a brutal white officer attacking a hapless black man, Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Vonda Evans sentenced Inkster police officer William Melendez to 13 months to 10 years behind bars.
Melendez sat stoically in court Tuesday as Evans, in usual fighting form, unleashed a lengthy discussion of the acts he was convicted of.
