SPOKANE -

Federal prosecutors are making good on their threat to charge more officers in connection with the Otto Zehm case.

U.S. Attorneys think a pair of Spokane Police patrol officers contradicted themselves on the stand during Karl Thompson's trial last year and now plan to charge them with obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors say the testimony Moses offered from the stand was different from what he told FBI agents during the investigation.

Sources say the Spokane Police Department was given the option of firing officers Tim Moses and Sandy McIntyre or that a grand jury would be asked to indict them. KXLY did confirm that Moses is still working with the department.

Both officers have hired attorneys who are trying to ward off the pending charges.

Meanwhile lawyers representing Thompson have accused federal prosecutors of misconduct and withholding evidence in the case.
