BEAVERTON -- City Council members voted 4-1 Monday night to spend another $5,000 for a private lawyer to continue to prosecute Officer Jessica Hull, a police officer convicted of speeding on duty.
Hull was convicted last month in Beaverton Municipal Court of going 40 mph in a 30 mph zone. A photo-radar unit took her picture behind the wheel of a police cruiser on Southwest Allen Boulevard on April 16, 2006. Hull's lawyer has appealed her $125 ticket to Washington County Circuit Court, which requires a new trial.
"Our policy has been if somebody gets a ticket, they pay it," Mayor Rob Drake said Monday night. "That's what this issue is about, period."
