MEDFORD, Ore.- On Thursday, March 15th a Rogue River Police Department Officer Nate Staller was found not guilty by a six person jury.
His now-estranged wife accused him of assualting and harrassing her at their previously shared Medford home on September 27th, 2017.
The jury heard witness testimony from his estranged wife, her friend, and four of the responding officers on scene that day. Body camera footage from those officers was shown to the jury.
After a short one day trial and deliberation, the jury found Staller not guilty on both counts of assault and harassment. That means the state could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he assaulted his wife.
