The Grounds for this Indictment are: Dispatch received a call of a bank truck being hit out front of the Casino. Officers staged at Vinewood Police Department and moved in together at once after the bank truck doors were exploded open. When the officers started to move in, they started taking fire by multiple people around the area. A shootout then started to occour between law enforcement and the individuals who were attempting to rob the bank truck. I drove up the highway northbound to flank the suspects shooting at the officers. While on the flank, there was one individual in a green jacket and brown hat shooting at police officers. I returned fire and the suspect fell down to the ground needing medical. Eventually, the gun fire stopped as we believed all suspects were downed. During that, officers took cover for a little while to make sure it did stop. Once the situation seemed to be a lot calmer and less gun shots, I ordered all officers to move the injured officers and suspects to the lobby of the casino for medical. All officers and suspects were taken into the lobby where they were treated on scene and stabalized. All suspects were cuffed, searched and GSR tested on scene before moving to Eclipse Medical for further evaluations and treatment. On scene in the lobby, I saw who later was ID'ed as Cash Benjamin in the lobby floor cuffed by 512 Rodger. 512 Rodger was the officer who cuffed and GSR tested Mr. Benjamin. Mr. Benjamin and his accomplances were transported to Vinewood Police Department. I started the processing on Mr. Benjamin and wrote up his charges in regards to what happened. I came back and informed Mr. Benjamin of his charges (one being attempted murder of a government employee) and he stated that he never shot at any police officers. He stated that he was defending himself against the security guards from the bank truck. Mr. Benjamin then asked for a lawyer in which I looked for one but didnt see one on life invader so I Bleeted out for one. No one responded back at first but a few moments later, Charolette Miles replied back on Bleeter. Ms. Miles came to MRPD to help represent Mr. Benjamin where he and his lawyer was instructed of the new charges (the ones listed below) and they had a brief meeting together. Ms. Miles and Mr. Benjamin, wanted to have the charge "Attempted Murder" to be dropped and Mr. Benjamin would plead guilty. I informed them that I would drop it to Assault with a Deadly as the lowest form as he shot at Security Officers of the Bank Truck. Mr. Benjamin did not take that deal and decided to plead not guilty. I looked to see if a Judge was available for a bail hearing, unfortunately none were available at the time. Mr. Benjamin was sentenced for 65 months and was NOT fined.

@Chargers may I ask how this would lead to Mr Benjamin loosing his weapons license? As all of the charges do not exceed 3 strikes against his license

It should also be pointed out Mr Benjamin also served time longer than the initial time he would of received as of this plea deal, and he did not pay a fine. Why should my client be serving additional time when all that would be required is payment of fines.

your honour
Count One: PC 2110 Accessory to Armed Robbery
Count Two: WF: 1003.1 Possession of a Class 1 Illegal Firearm
Count Three: NM 1015 Unlawful Possession of Contraband
Count Four: WF 1010 Negligent Discharge of a Firearm

the defence motions for a RJI to sort this plea agreement out as i have heard nothing from mr bowman about mr benjamin loosing his weapons license when his charges do not even warrent 3 strikes against his firearms license. Mr benjamin is happy for the charges presented and for his firearms license to not be taken away as the charges do not and should not mean for his license to be revoked... mr benjamin is also fully knowledgeable and well versed in our criminal code. he is not going to agree to these terms and conditions if they are not following proper rulings.

once again we will ask for
Count One: PC 2110 Accessory to Armed Robbery
Count Two: WF: 1003.1 Possession of a Class 1 Illegal Firearm
Count Three: NM 1015 Unlawful Possession of Contraband
Count Four: WF 1010 Negligent Discharge of a Firearm to be accepted and mr benjamins weapons licence to still be in his name as said before charges do not add up to a revocation. i would like to get this out and over and done with as we have already spent so long on this. thankyou.
