Attorney of Urbandale Sergeant Hopes Lawsuit Against Department Will Change Culture Behind The Badge
URBANDALE, Iowa -- It's been over two years since officer Justin Martin was shot and killed in Urbandale at 70th and Aurora. The intersection seems undisturbed today with the exception of memorial flowers but according to a lawsuit filed by Urbandale Sergeant Mark Jorgensen against his own department, it's an intersection he became "Plagued with severe nightmares and images of the murder scene that he could not erase from his mind." Jorgensen's attorney, David Albrecht said, "Sergeant Jorgensen's PTSD is certainly something that affects him in his daily life. It affects his ability to sleep and deal with issues."
