A lawsuit of more than $2.6 million has been filed against Boone County prosecuting attorney Dan Knight and the Columbia Police Department.
Two fathers and their sons allege that police wrongfully seized their firearms and refuse to reasonably return them.
Allan and Gregory Rodgers and Robert and Raymond Franklin also claim that Raymond Franklin was maliciously prosecuted as a "felon in possession of a firearm," which led to jail time. The lawsuit also says Gregory Rodgers faced police retaliation after filing an excessive force complaint.
