Information about the beating in 2019 surfaced just days after the victim sued the San Francisco District Attorney’s office for violating the Victim’s Bill of Rights.
Anh Lê claims his rights were violated when the DA failed to notify him of a plea bargain.
However, the San Francisco Chronicle reports the victim advocate from the DA reached out to Le more than two dozen times.
The DA is also now saying that photos of Le taken after the incident show no physical injuries to Le. The office also says the suspects are a disabled man in a wheelchair and an 11-year old boy.
Le’s attorney accused the DA’s office of revictimizing his client.
“It was the most brutal, terrifying, and humiliating experience of my life,” Lê said at a press conference, reports SFist.
Boudin who is facing a recall has been under fire from critics who say he goes too easy on criminals.
