SPOKANE-- Judge Justin Quackenbush has denied Karl Thompson's defense attorney's request to interview jurors from the criminal trial.
Thompson was convicted of excessive force and lying to investigators by a Yakima jury.
The defense alleged members of the jury may have seen extra information that would prejudice their decision.
The judge said in his ruling that there was not enough evidence presented by the defense to prove it.
Thompson is scheduled to be sentence January 27th.
