Special Prosecutor Angela Corey says the shooting case of Trayvon Martin will not go before a grand jury.
Corey announced her decision today as she continues to investigate the case, one day before a grand jury convenes in Florida.
She took over last month after the prosecutor who normally handles cases out of Sanford recused himself. That prosecutororiginally called for the case to be presented before that grand jury.
Days after taking control, Corey said her office is committed to getting answers.
“We have to still finish our investigation, and then decide in what forum that will occur,” she said.
Corey's office releasing a statement on the decision saying, "From the moment she was assigned, Ms. Corey noted she may not need a grand jury."
Corey has a reputation for not presenting cases before grand juries if it is not required.
The special prosecutor says her decision to skip one should not be considered a sign as to whether charges will be filed against George Zimmerman.
He is the neighborhood watch volunteer who has admitted to shooting Martin, claiming he was acting in self-defense.
One of the attorney's representing Zimmerman believes no grand jury bodes well for his client.
No grand jury means the decision whether or not to file charges in this case now rests entirely with the special prosecutor. There is mo timetable as to when that decision might come.
