Five Shreveport firefighters accused of abusing two adults with disabilities were in court Tuesday for a pre-trial hearing about specific prosecutorial evidence the defense says they weren't privy to.
Police said the accused firefighters from the city's Fire Station 8 subjected two disabled adults, who were regulars there, to cruel pranks over the last few years.
Four of the five Shreveport firefighters accused of abuse will appeal their termination before Shreveport's Civil Service Board in October.
The board was scheduled to hear the appeals of termination for Billy Glass, Derrick Harris, Jason Vaughn, and Clint Richardson today, but that was postponed.
After allegations of abuse at Shreveport Fire Station 8, the firefighters were arrested.
