HOSPITALIZED 11 DAYS!
Richard Rivera, Jr., 18, who was shot by a still unnamed Lancaster Police Officer on Friday, July 11, was released from Lancaster General Hospital yesterday. According to the Lancaster County Prison website, he is housed in the “ADSEG” block, which stands for “Administrative Segregation,” but commonly means “solitary confinement.”
According to his docket, he was scheduled for his preliminary hearing today at 2:15 pm in front of District Judge John C. Winters. Ms. Kim of Winters’ office, said this afternoon by phone that since he had only been released from the hospital yesterday, he has not had the opportunity to obtain legal counsel and today’s hearing was continued for that reason.
