Milwaukee Officer: NRA hat raised concern about possible gun in car

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

A Milwaukee County jury on Tuesday found a gun rights activist not guilty of carrying a concealed weapon while parked outside a closed Milwaukee coffee shop last fall, using its Wi Fi signal.
Krysta Sutterfield, 43, dropped her shoulders and hung her head as the verdict was read about 30 minutes after deliberations began. Later she wiped her brow, and hugged her attorney.  She had faced up to nine months in jail if the verdict had gone the other way.
The current case boiled down to Sutterfield's word against an officers. Sutterfield testified her jacket was tucked behind her holster from the time she left home that night.
Milwaukee Police Officer Cassandra Benitez testified that when she  first looked into Sutterfield's car from the passenger side, with a flashlight, she did not notice the 9mm Glock on Sutterfield's hip, despite being extra alert to a possible weapon after seeing an National Rifle Association cap on the backseat.
Benitez testified that her training told her that presence of NRA gear makes it more likely the person might have a gun.
