THE ATTORNEY for a woman who was hit in the face by former Philadelphia police Lt. Jonathan Josey says his client left Josey's arbitration hearing in tears yesterday after intense questioning from a lawyer representing the Fraternal Order of Police.
"This process is shockingly brutal for a person that got punched in the face," attorney Enrique Latoison said. "Why was anything necessary for her to be attacked like that again?"
Latoison represents 39-year-old Aida Guzman, who was filmed being hit in the face by Josey during a Puerto Rican Day celebration Sept. 30. The video quickly went viral. Josey was fired and charged with assault, but he was acquitted at a bench trial after claiming he was trying to knock a beer out of Guzman's hand.
