( Cincinnati ) - "I'm done with 'em. The charges today that you have will not be reduced in any fashion. They will not be dismissed, and that will apply as long as I'm prosecutor," said Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters in a news conference on Thursday.
There are 14 people facing felony charges from the protests in Cincinnati that turned violent. The suspects, all from the Tri-State area and mostly from Cincinnati, are charged with a variety of counts ranging from harassment with a bodily substance to breaking and entering to assault.
On one of the violent nights, a Cincinnati police officer was allegedly shot in the helmet. Deters says that suspect has not yet been found.
