In district court the defendant has a prelim hearing to see if enough evidence to take to the grand jury. The charges were dropped. If the KSP were going to take action, it would have been at this time.

Shearer stated the state police IS going to present the WHOLE case to grand jury on 2/26/2013. This is FAR from being over for Nick. Double jeopardy has not happened Jerod.
Shearer could not do anything with the case, because of STATE an/or FEDERAL charges MAY or MAY NOT be charged on Nick.

Did you read the article in the Columbia Mag? That is what I am going by and if KSP dropped charges it is over. As I stated, most criminal cases have a preliminary hearing in district court to see if the judge thinks there is enough evidence to hold the case over to the grand jury. The judge dismissed the case. If KSP had a case, that was their opportunity to present. I know DJ did not happen.

What if any Federal laws were broken for US Attorneys office to take notice of this case?

Notice how Laker Country refuses to put the story about the dismissal of charges on their website? They sure were quick to splatter his name all over the place when he was arrested.

Typical slanted (I use the term loosely) "journalism".

So What

You people are idiots. You obviously have no clue how the system works. The prosecutor could not move forward with charges in local court. Nick cannot get his job back nor work in law enforcement ever again and will probably be formally termined as soon as the indictment happens. The felony charges are going forward on the 26th and he will be indicted in federal court. There will be no plea deal after the one the offered other day. It will go to trial. He obviously thinks he is innocent or he is misguided, or he would have taken a deal already.

Believe what you want, but that is the facts as of now.

The reason is because the charges are still pending, not totally dismissed. It is called more accurate journalism than what the Columbia Magazine reported and the WAVE.

Where did you get this info? The feds usually do not discuss in public what they are taking to the grand jury. Your statement is full of non facts, like getting his job back, will be indicted, will go to trial. These are either your assumptions or something you just made up. Is it in print or did the feds choose to tell just you?

Would that be the same station that ignored the state trooper's gun being found in the school gym by an inmate?

Accuracy has nothing to do with it. The story was that the charges were dismissed in court. If charges are re-filed, then that would be yet another story. Can you grasp that?

I find this HIGHLY unlikely and I would hope to God a real member of the Grand Jury would not post on TOPIX.
