Statement from attorneys for Officer Steven Rivers
ATTORNEYS FOR OFFICER STEVEN RIVERS
MARCH 19, 2014
The fact that Officer Rivers has been placed on unpaid leave is a function of him being a part-time officer with the Beaumont Independent School District Police Department and does not imply any impropriety or wrongdoing on his part. On behalf of Officer Rivers, we respectfully request that all interested parties, the media and the public respect the investigative process and not rush to judgment in this case. Although we believe there are additional facts to be developed that have not yet been divulged and we anticipate will exonerate Officer Rivers in this unfortunate incident, it is not appropriate to comment further while the investigative process is ongoing.
