After the U.S. Department of Justice announced in May it would not file criminal civil rights charges against the two officers, the case was turned over to Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry to determine if state criminal charges are warranted. That investigation is still pending. Once the Attorney General's Office completes the review, Landry has several options in how to proceed. If he determines neither officer broke the law during the fatal encounter, Landry simply could announce he's closing the investigation without charges. Or if he determines criminal charges may be warranted, he can file any charge short of murder directly with a bill of information. He also could present the case to a grand jury, a process that could last for hours or weeks, depending on how much evidence the attorney general decides to show jurors during the secret proceedings.
