Squabbling over Dorner Reward Continues

Lawyers now involved


The lawyer for a man carjacked by Christopher Dorner the day Dorner died objected Tuesday to the newly announced process for distributing a reward of $1 million or more that had been offered for the ex-police officer's capture or conviction.

Rick Heltebrake, who has earlier publicly claimed the reward, raised questions in an eight-page letter sent to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Heltebrake's lawyer, Allen Thomas, wrote that an announcement Friday left it unclear how the reward process will work. And he said the questions should be resolved before claimants are asked to waive their right to challenge the results in court.
