No Grand Jury in Martin Case


The special prosecutor long ago said she planned to make the decision of whether to prosecute George Zimmerman without a grand jury, but now it’s official. From a CNN news update:

State Attorney Angela Corey, appointed as a special prosecutor in the February shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, has decided against sending the case to a grand jury, her office said Monday.

“The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case,” Corey’s office said in a statement.

“At this time, the investigation continues and there will be no further comment from this office,” the statement said.
