A judge has granted an extension for the grand jury in charge of deciding whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will be acquitted or charged with a crime.
Jessica Lussenhop Michael Brown Sr., Lesley McSpadden and Pastor Carlton Lee in front of the Buzz Westfall Justice Center in Clayton Saturday.
The twelve jurors now have until January 7 to indict Wilson for shooting and killing unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson on August 9 or to let him go, St. Louis County Judge Carolyn Whittington ruled.
Anthony Gray, an attorney for the Brown family, said he was "flabbergasted" when Daily RFT called and told him about the grand jury delay Monday night. He added that the trial depends on St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch, who has been heavily criticized by black leaders for his handling of the case, to present "sufficient evidence."
