Did The Department Of Justice Just Place A Hold On All Evidence Involved In Zimmerman Case
The Sanford Police Department has apparently announced that the Department of Justice has placed a hold on returning all evidence involved in the Zimmerman case. Details on what the Department Justice plans to do with the items is still unclear and developing, but it looks as if the Department of Justice may possible look into the case.
According to Central Florida New 13 the Department of Justice said in a statement on Minday:
“As the Department first acknowledged last year, we have an open investigation into the death of Trayvon Martin. The Department of Justice’s Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial. Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the Department’s policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial.”
Stay tuned for up to date news on the matter.
