The state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old African-American woman who was found dead three days later in her Waller County jail cell, has been indicted on perjury charges, a special prosecutor said.

Following news of the indictment, DPS announced it was beginning termination proceedings against Encinia.

.

“Following the Waller County grand jury indictment of Trooper Brian Encinia today, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) will begin termination proceedings to discharge him from the department,” the agency said, in a press release Wednesday night.

Cannon Lambert, one of the Chicago-based lawyers representing Bland’s relatives in their lawsuit, said the family still had questions.

.

“We just don’t understand why it took six months to charge him for lying when you can see he was lying in the videotape they have had from the very beginning,” he said. “We also don’t understand why [Encinia] wasn’t charged with assault when he said ‘I’ll light you up, and with battery for grabbing [Bland] when she was in the car.”

.

“Why didn’t they charge him with false arrest?” he continued. “The whole arrest was predicated on a phantom kick – why didn’t they charge him with abuse of police power — all he had to do was give her the warning.”

.

The charge the trooper now faces is a Class A misdemeanor. If convicted, Encinia could face up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
Bland’s mother, Geneva Reed-Veal called the grand jury decision a “slap on the wrist.”

.

“What I’m looking for is for the accountability to be placed where it needs to be,” she said. “That’s what I want to see.”

.

The state Office of the Attorney General – which is representing Encinia in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Bland’s family against the trooper, DPS, the Waller County Sheriff’s Office, and two Waller County jailers – will not be representing him in the criminal case, according to an OAG spokeswoman.

After the announcement of the indictment, House County Affairs Committee Chairman Garnet Coleman, D-Houston, who presided over hearings to investigate policing and safety in the state’s jails, said in a statement he was “glad that Sandra Bland’s family will get their day in court.”

.

“In my opinion, Trooper Brian Encinia’s actions were the catalyst for the death of Sandra Bland,” he said.
