Vauhxx Booker: Black man condemns charges over alleged race attack

In a statement, Sonia Leerkamp, the special prosecutor for Monroe County, told the BBC: “Mr Booker is presumed innocent of any charges that have been filed. That being said, unlike Mr Booker, I am ethically restrained from commenting on the evidence prior to its presentation at trial. I am doing my best to apply the law to the facts and follow the principle that we are a nation of laws, not men.”
