The Jeronimo Yanez Trial: Prosecution Expert Says Castile Was Not a Threat
Jeffrey Noble testified in the manslaughter trial of Jeronimo Yanez

Jeffrey Noble testified in the manslaughter trial of Jeronimo Yanez.
Noble says Yanez’s actions were unreasonable and he should have acted differently.

Defense attorneys say Castile was stoned, contributing to his death.
A toxicologist testified that it’s impossible to determine.
