State Attorney Cancels Trayvon Martin Grand Jury

SANFORD, Florida – Florida State Attorney Angela Corey has decided not to use a Grand Jury in the Trayvon Martin shooting death investigation according to a press release issued by her office today.

Corey said in the press release that “The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case…Ms. Corey was appointed as the Special Prosecutor on March 22, 2012, by Governor Rick Scott.  From the moment she was assigned, Ms. Corey noted she may not need a Grand Jury.”   

The Grand Jury, set to convene on April 10, 2012, was previously scheduled by Norm Wolfinger, State Attorney for Brevard County and Seminole County who stepped down from the case last month after controversy erupted over the lack of prosecution against the shooter, George Zimmerman.
