ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch reiterated Monday the Grand Jury in the Michael Brown shooting case will not make a decision on whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson until mid to late November.
In statement, McCulloch said the timeline, which he has announced several times publicly, has not changed. The statement was released amid rumors that a Grand Jury decision is imminent.
McCulloch also said he will notify the Brown family attorney and the public before the decision is announced.
Below is McCulloch's statement in full:
As recently as November 4, 2014 I stated that the Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case was still hearing evidence and had not made a decision. I also stated that I did not expect the Grand Jury to complete its work and make a decision until mid to late November. That timeframe has not changed.
I realize that this is a much anticipated decision and that there is daily, if not hourly, speculation about when the announcement will be released.
Once the work of the Grand Jury is completed and they have made a determination, my Office will advise the public and the media when their decision will be released. Until that notice comes directly from this Office, ANY AND ALL claims of an announcement date or time from any source, especially social media, are rank speculation and should be ignored.
