Statement Of U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger On Partial Verdict After Trial Of Officer Michael Griffin

“While we had hoped for a different outcome, we respect the verdict of the jury and thank them for their service during this long and difficult trial. We strongly believe that this case needed to be brought before a Court, publicly tried, and decided by a jury. Our office is reviewing its options as to those remaining counts of the indictment upon which the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict.”
