(NEWSER) – St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch has offered some surprising revelations to a local St. Louis radio station about the grand jury proceedings in the Michael Brown case—namely that he knows some of the witnesses he put on the stand lied.
"Clearly, some were not telling the truth," he said, adding that he had no plans to file perjury charges. "There were people who came in and, yes, absolutely lied under oath." McCulloch says he decided from the start to allow anyone who claimed to be a witness to testify, and to let the jurors assess their credibility. He referred in particular to one witness, saying, "this lady clearly wasn't present" when the shooting occurred. And yet she testified that she saw Brown charge officer Darren Wilson, parroting what she read in the newspaper, he said.
