- Attorney for Breonna Taylor's family accuses Commonwealth's Attorney of wrongdoing

- Commonwealth's Attorney Tom Wine says Aguilar's post showed draft documents, not official court documents
- Wine says his office doesn't posthumously indict anyone
A plea deal for drug charges for Glover from March and April incidents was released by the Commonwealth's Attorney Monday, after the attorney for Taylor's estate took to social media to accuse the prosecutor of trying to name Taylor as a co-defendant and indict her in July long after she died.
In a post on Attorney Sam Aguiar's personal Facebook page, he wrote Monday, that a July plea deal names Taylor as a co-defendant of Glover's. Aguiar said, "Breonna Taylor is not a 'co-defendant' in a criminal case. She’s dead. Way to try and attack a woman when she’s not even here to defend herself."
After this, Commonwealth's Attorney Tom Wine released a copy of the plea deal he says is official, which does not involve Breonna Taylor. Wine says the document shown by Aguiar in his post is not an official court document and was a draft and part of pre-indictment plea negotiations between Glover and his attorney.
When Wine sent the final plea document in a news release Monday, he said in part, "The final plea sheet provided to Mr. Glover's counsel is attached and clearly does not include Ms. Taylor as a Co-Defendant. This plea sheet was emailed on July 21, 2020, to Mr. Glover's attorney. The offer was withdrawn when Mr. Glover failed to surrender himself to court. Mr. Aguiar's characterization of the draft plea sheet is false as Ms. Taylor was never a Co-Defendant with Mr. Glover. Further, his comments regarding our office distributing 'one-sided' information is also a false accusation. Our office has not and does not posthumously indict any person who is deceased," said Wine.
