Cops Made ‘White Boy Rick’ Wershe a Drug Snitch at 14. Now He’s Suing.

In a Sept. 4, 2015 file photo, Richard 'White Boy Rick\" Wershe Jr. sits in a courtroom at Frank Murphy Hall of Justice in Detroit. Officials even allegedly used Wershe’s father’s name—Richard J. Wershe Sr.—in files to hide their relationship with the teen and occasionally gave him money to stay quiet. According to the lawsuit, Wershe felt he had no choice but to get into the agent’s car, as instructed. Wershe was expected to return a portion of those drugs to law enforcement and, based on the instructions of the adults, sell the rest. Despite that sentence, law enforcement would return to him years later for even more information and testimony on corrupt police officers and gang members.
