#FERGUSON: Darren Wilson Could Return to Duty If No Indictment

I don’t think that would be a very good idea for him.

FERGUSON, Mo. – Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told NewsChannel 5 that Officer Darren Wilson could return to the police force.

Friday night, Chief Jackson said if the grand jury does not indict Wilson, he will immediately return to active duty. However, Chief Jackson said if the grand jury does return an indictment, Officer Wilson will most likely be fired.

Saturday, Jackson clarified his statements to MSNBC, saying he was speaking in legal terms. He said Missouri law would allow Wilson to return to the force if he is cleared of any charges. The police department would also conduct an internal review of the Michael Brown shooting, to see if Wilson violated any Ferguson police department policies.
