Darren Wilson, the police officer accused of shooting Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, has been missing court dates.Wilson has not been seen since August 9. Six cases have been dismissd because Wilson, as the arresting officer and isn’t showing up to court to testify.
Ed Magee, spokesperson for the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney, told NBC News the cases were all dismissed because Wilson “wasn’t available.” Wilson will not be penalized for this act, say Magee, adding “We don’t get people in trouble for not showing up for court.”
Magee told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a case dismissed on Monday was the “sixth low-level drug case connected to Wilson to be dropped in recent weeks.” Details of the first five closed cases are unknown.
A grand jury is still reviewing evidence in the case between Michael Brown and Wilson.
