Five Cases in Ferguson, Mo., In Which Darren Wilson Was ‘Indispensable Witness’ Dismissed

AndreyPopov/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(FERGUSON, Mo.) — Saint Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced on Wednesday that five felony cases in Ferguson in which Officer Darren Wilson — the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown, 18, in August — was an indispensable witness for the prosecution will be dismissed.

The announcement was made in a press release, which noted Wilson is a witness in “approximately ten of the nearly 4200 pending felony cases in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County.” The five cases in which he is an indispensable witness will be dismissed, while the remaining will proceed without Wilson as a witness.

“Neither the cases being dismissed nor the prosecution of those remaining will in any manner effect the investigation or the presentation of the evidence to the Grand Jury in the shooting death of Michael Brown,” McCulloch said in the press release.
