WA:Charges Dropped on Armed Citizen after Witness Recants

14 months of insanity to have the charges dismissed.  All based on phoney testimony.

A Clark County judge today dismissed all charges against a Vancouver homeowner who shot and killed an alleged car prowler in January 2013.


A witness in the case, neighbor Rachelle Ammons, originally told Vancouver police that Doucette and Dumitrash had engaged in a physical altercation, then separated, according to a probable cause affidavit by Vancouver police Detective John Ringo. Ammons said Dumitrash was beginning to walk away when Doucette shot him, according to the affidavit.

However, during a subsequent interview with Thayer, Ammons gave a different account of what happened that night. She said that, in fact, Doucette had shot Dumitrash in self-defense when Dumitrash charged at him, Klein wrote in a dismissal motion.
