IMG_4342Shei’meka Newmann, an employee at Weiden+Kennedy and a citizen honored for her service to underprivileged children, saw police roughly handling a young black man on a MAX train. She had the audacity to ask Portland Police officers Jim Sandvik and Aaron Dauchy for their business cards.  She was battered, injured, then arrested and charged with 5 crimes. All criminal charges were eventually dismissed. We helped the jury set things straight by awarding her $82,000.
