While the Bonneville County prosecutor has declined to file any criminal charges in connection with the March shooting of Phillip Clay by a bounty hunter, the potential of other charges still exist.
“We will not file anything relating to the shooting, but all other aspects of the investigation are still on the table,” according to Chief Deputy Prosecutor James Murdock.
At issue are allegations of impersonating a police officer and possibly performing traffic stops. Bondsmen and bail companies are regulated by the Idaho Dept. of Insurance.
Clay was wanted on charges of absconding from Ada County where he was to stand trial on drug charges. His bond of $100,000 has been forfeited by court order since he did not appear for trial…due to his death.
