MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/30/14) — A Hopkins County Grand Jury has returned a 'no true bill' conclusion in the case of the two police officers involved in the shooting of Douglas M. Seaton, 35, on the evening Saturday, June 21.
“No true bill,” means that the grand jury determined there was no probable cause to issue an indictment. If fewer than 12 grand jurors vote in favor of an indictment, the result is a “no true bill.”
The case was presented to the grand jury by Kentucky State Police Lt. Brenton Ford, according to a KSP report.
The officers, Ryan Clark and Justin Browning, were placed on administrative leave after the shooting as a matter of protocol. The officers recently returned to active duty.See original story here.
