ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The grand jury investigating the fatal shooting of Michael Brown chose not to indict Officer Darren Wilson. The grand jury decided that no probable cause existed to charge Officer Wilson. St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch has released the evidence the grand jury has reviewed.
Grand jury proceedings are secret, and when no indictment is handed down — as was the case for Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson — the files remain locked up. But in an unusual step after a grand jury deliberation, transcripts of testimony that jurors heard considering Michael Brown’s death have been released to the public. Late Monday night, officials made available 24 volumes of material, covering 23 meetings that the grand jury held between August 20 and November 21.
