Almost exactly a year after Sandra Bland was found hanging in a jail cell in Texas, a Prairie View police officer has come forward with new accusations against the officer who arrested her, ABC News reports.

Prairie View officer Michael Kelley says that county officials told him to keep quiet and threatened him from originally coming forward with information about injuries Bland reportedly suffered during her detainment, as well as negligence on behalf of State Trooper Brian Encinia, the the man who pulled her over.

He alleges Encinia had to call a supervisor to ask what he could charge Bland with, and that she had marks on her forehead after she was brought to jail. Kelley also said that the police report Encinia filed omitted important details, and that county prosecutors tried to shut him up and told him he would be punished for speaking to Bland’s family attorney.
