Okay, so there is one thing to see. Remember when this happened back in December?
Well, it was announced the other day that no charges are being filed in connection with that incident.
Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III “will not be authorizing criminal charges in this case,” Shanon Banner, a spokeswoman for the Michigan State Police, wrote in an e-mail to the Erik Wemple Blog this morning.
Dunnings said in an interview that the video his office originally reviewed on the matter “appeared to have been edited.” A subsequent review of what the prosecutor termed “unedited” video helped the office reach its decision not to proceed with a case.
“A look at the unedited video, taken in conjunction with the statements of the alleged victim and the alleged assailant, led me to the conclusion that I would not authorize issuance of the warrant,” Dunnings said.
Now, I wasn’t there, I haven’t seen or heard the testimony, and I am not an attorney, so I’m not going to say that Dunnings made a bad call. What I will do is point you to his campaign website. Go ahead and click over there and take a look. Notice anything? Maybe up there by that statue of Justice? Yeah.
Like I said, nothing to see here.
