SFPD shooting victim part of Adachi budget hearing

Among those expected to testify in front of the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee today at 11 a.m. for more money at the Public Defender's Office will be Frances Sheehan.

She is the sister of Theresa Sheehan, an at-home mental health patient shot six times by San Francisco police in August 2008 after she threatened a healthcare worker and two officers.

The Public Defender's Office helped Sheehan escape criminal charges – two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of assault on a peace officer – after she was shot.

The two officers involved, Sgt. Kimberly Reynolds, a 17-year veteran and Officer Kathrine Holder, who has been with the SFPD for eight years, were recently awarded medals of valor for the incident.

Theresa Sheehan, who survived the shooting, is currently suing The City for $10 million.
