More Drug Cases Involving Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson Dismissed
Due to Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager, missing court appearances after gong into hiding, a half of dozen felony cases are to be dismissed, or have been already.
[su_center_ad]The Associated Press reports:
A review by county prosecutors of drug arrests involving the Ferguson police officer who killed an unarmed, black 18-year-old in a separate incident has led to the dismissal of a half-dozen felony cases.
A spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said Tuesday that six felony drug cases involving Officer Darren Wilson won’t be prosecuted, primarily because Wilson missed several court appearances after going into hiding following Michael Brown’s early August death.
The dropped cases include a felony marijuana possession charge against 28-year-old Christopher A. Brooks that was thrown out on Monday after a judge had agreed to put the case on hold when Wilson missed a late September preliminary hearing.
For his role in that arrest, Wilson previously received a Ferguson City Council commendation. [su_csky_ad]
