Court Discloses Info on Michael Brown's Juvenile Records; Some Still Dissatisfied

Categories: Michael Brown

The St. Louis County Circuit Court confirmed that Michael Brown, who was shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, had no major felony convictions or charges as a juvenile.

The revelation comes after professional media organizations, including GotNews.com and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch fought in court for the public's right to know about what an unarmed, eighteen-year-old did as a minor in the years before he was shot and killed by Wilson.

According to the Post-Dispatch:

Michael Brown was never found delinquent of the juvenile equivalents of any Class A or B felony charges, and was not facing any at the time he died, a court official said this morning at a hearing on whether his juvenile records should be released...

Class A felonies include second-degree murder and first-degree robbery; the penalties in adult court range from 10 years in prison to death. Class B felonies include voluntary manslaughter, second-degree robbery and first-degree burglary, with a maximum penalty of five to 15 years.

However, the Post-Dispatch and GotNews.com were unsuccessful in getting every detail of Brown's childhood actions before his death:

It is not known whether Brown had ever been accused of lesser offenses; any record of those would be part of a confidential family court file.

The lack of information regarding what -- if any -- C felonies or lesser offenses, such as littering citations, Brown may have had left some feeling there were still too many questions about the young, unarmed man shot and killed by a police officer.

One of those questioning was conservative blogger Charles C. Johnson, who was alongside Post-Dispatch attorneys to get access to Brown's records. Johnson said that just because one was never convicted of a crime, that doesn't mean that the person might have suspected of doing something at some point in their life:

In order to further serve the public with highly relevant information to this controversial case, Riverfront Times announced it is seeking access to Wilson's juvenile records.

That process is still ongoing. However, it has been recently discovered that Wilson, while a senior on the St. Charles West inline hockey team, was ejected from a game for being the "third man in" and receiving a 10-minute game misconduct.

I don't know, next time your get stopped by the police, shove the officer back in his car, punch him in the face, and try to grab his gun. See if you don't get shot 6 times too.

Earl Barge not sure you're 100% on this. I think they may be able to release them if the guy is dead. On the other hand, you and I both know that a huge (if I could underline and make "huge" bold I would) number of cases are pleaded down or downright thrown out for pretty flimsy reasons. Not sure if this means anything anyway.

It has not been disproven that Officer's Wilson eye socket was broken. It's only been disproven that the picture is not him.

A and B felonies would only be public if he had been adjudicated as an adult. If he committed any crimes or juvenile offenses, they would not release any of that information to the public.

This feed makes me so sad. At the end of the day, a mother had to bury her son- not her black son, but her SON. I have a son too. He's not my white son- he's my son and I'd die without him. I have a horrible feeling Michael's mother is in that place right now. My prayers and heart go out to her.

Casey, your arguement couldn't hurt anyone, I'm sorry. If you're going to argue from a religious stance, you need to actually know your Bible and be able to site specifics.

I'm ashamed that most of you live in or near St. Louis. I don't want you within 1000 miles of me or anyone I love. Just obscene comments on this thread.

You must live in St. Louis where most crimes are crimes of race upon their own race and most of them violent. Change needs to come and that change is only in renewal of faith in Christ.
