Convicted Cop Wants To Be Moved

Posted: Updated:
A former police officer charged in the deadly shootings of civilians after Hurricane Katrina is seeking a transfer from a federal prison while he awaits a retrial.
    
Robert Faulcon's attorneys say in a federal court motion this week that he should be moved to a New Orleans area lockup from a federal prison in Atwater, California. They say the move would improve Faulcon's safety and his ability to help with his defense.
    
Faulcon's conviction related to the 2005 shootings at the Danziger Bridge and the subsequent cover-up were overturned last September by a federal judge. That followed news that anonymous comments on a New Orleans newspaper's website had been posted by prosecutors.
    
A co-defendant, former police Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, has already been granted a move to a New Orleans lockup.
