During week 2 of Andrew Delke’s 3-year incarceration for killing Daniel Hambrick, the former MNPD Officer spent $146 on 20 games to play on his jail-provided tablet, $91 renting 13 movies, and spent $133 downloading music to listen to. He began the week with $2,973 on his books.
The world was shocked when MNPD Officer Andrew Delke was suddenly offered a 3-year plea deal for the on-duty murder of Daniel Hambrick. Hambrick’s family wasn’t even consulted on the terms. What wasn’t known at the time was that Delke’s attorney, David Raybin, had testified on behalf of Glenn Funk in his own case previously, keeping him out of some serious ethical trouble – and making this sudden sweetheart deal seem even more unusual. Funk likely assumed no one would find out about the prior beneficial relationship because that case wasn’t available to the public – until now.
