Judge in Michael Brown Case May Not Release Evidence
In response to a local report, Paul Fox, director of the St. Louis County Circuit Court Judicial Administration, said the presiding grand jury judge “has entered no such order and has made no such agreement” to release the evidence if Darren Wilson is not indicted.
“If the grand jury returns a no true bill, the judge anticipates the court will receive requests for grand jury records. Some of those requests will require the court to analyze the need for maintaining secrecy of the records with the need for public disclosure of the records,” Fox wrote in a document released Sunday.
The community anticipated a grand jury vote as early as Saturday, but the members now plan to meet next on Monday.
St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch previously said the evidence seen by the grand jury over the past few months would be presented to the public if Wilson is not indicted, which many people expect will be the outcome.
