Darren Wilson Testifies In Front Of Grand Jury

Remember when we told you that the grand jury in Missouri has up until JANUARY to charge Darren Wilson for the murder of Mike Brown???

Well Wilson faced the music (kinda) yesterday and testified to them for FOUR hours about what happened that August day.

STL Today reports:

Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson testified for almost four hours Tuesday in front of a St. Louis County grand jury investigating the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown, a source with knowledge of the investigation said Wednesday.

Wilson was not obligated to testify, and has also spoken with St. Louis County investigators twice and federal investigators once, the source said. The source said that Wilson had been “cooperative.”

Ed Magee, a spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch’s office, said Wednesday that he would not comment on which witnesses have testified.

McCulloch has said that prosecutors would present all the evidence and witnesses to the 12 members of the jury and leave the decision of whether to charge Wilson up to them.

Magee told the Post-Dispatch Monday that prosecutors will help navigate legal issues.

The grand jury hearing the evidence was empanelled before the shooting.

Its term would have normally expired last week, but prosecutors sought an extension and Circuit Judge Carolyn Whittington granted it — extending the term to Jan. 7, the maximum allowed under the law. McCulloch originally said a decision could come by mid-October, but the extension allows more time if needed to present evidence.

McCulloch has promised to seek the public release of all evidence if there is no indictment.

It’s been 40 days since Mike Brown was murdered and there’s still unrest in Ferguson. How much longer will this continue and how much longer will Darren Wilson be on PAID vacation?!?!?
