Whistleblower’s Attorney Makes Conflict Claim In MO Highway Patrol Drowning Case

Jefferson City, MO (KTRS)  An attorney for a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper who criticized the agency after a handcuffed Iowa man fell from a patrol boat and drowned in the Lake of the Ozarks says it is a conflict for state Attorney General Chris Koster to represent police in a lawsuit involving his client.

Koster is representing several patrol members in a lawsuit related to the drowning of Brandon Ellingson. Because  Randy Henry is a witness for the plaintiffs, attorney Chet Pleban claims Koster’s office is “representing everybody who is at odds” with Henry. Pleban says Henry, a nearly 30-year-veteran of the Patrol,  demoted from sergeant to corporal in June

Pleban has filed a conflict-of-interest motion in the case.
