Feidin Santana paid for his own flight to the U.S. to testify at Michael Slager’s murder trial, a prosecutor said Thursday.
It wasn’t until after the proceeding, which ended in a hung jury, when the state reimbursed him for the trek at his request, 9th Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said.
Wilson clarified her office’s handling of expenses for the eyewitness who filmed Slager, a former North Charleston policeman, shooting Walter Scott in April 2015. The evidence prompted Slager’s arrest on a murder charge.
