6 Ex-Officers Plead Guilty to State Charges in Torture of Two Black Men

Six white former law enforcement officers pleaded guilty in Mississippi on Monday to state charges tied to a home raid they conducted in which prosecutors said they beat and tortured two Black men.

The guilty pleas came less than two weeks after the former officers pleaded guilty on Aug. 3 to federal civil rights offenses stemming from the raid on Jan. 24, in which prosecutors said one of the men was shot in the mouth, and the other had a sex toy forced into his mouth.

After the assault, the officers tried to cover up the attack and plant evidence, prosecutors said.

This is a developing story.
