Default PlayStation murder case plagued by paperwork error

Can you imagine having your son shot and killed (murdered) by the police and then later you find out that the murder charges were dismissed by an idiot foreman who checked the wrong box? If this killer (cop) can't be retried for murder I hope that the family sues the pants off the jury foreman or whoever is deemed responsible. I just hope our law allows for the charges to be brought up again and that the skumbag lawyers for this murderer (cop) don’t manage to use this well enough to get his client off.

Officials dismissed a murder charge Tuesday against a sheriff's deputy accused of shooting and killing an unarmed teenager who authorities believed had stolen video game consoles.

A grand jury foreman said he had checked the wrong box on the indictment paperwork, triggering the dismissal.

This was a grand jury, so yes, they just have to present the charges to another grand jury I believe. He never went to trial so it wouldn't be double jeopardy. Though I'm not a lawyer, so who knows.

I sure hope that is the case. I wasn't sure if they had one chance to bring charges or more. I think the article said it was being looked into. I'm sure this is a ground-breaking case (in terms of the wrong box being checked) so they are being extra careful about how they go about bringing charges a second time.
