A St. Louis grand jury has indicted Mark and Patricia McCloskey on charges of exhibiting guns at protesters in a June incident in their neighborhood.
In addition, they added a charge of tampering with evidence.
Joel Schwartz, the couple’s attorney said he wasn’t surprised by the indictment and argued the grand jury didn’t have all the facts.
“Once all the facts are out, it will be clear the McCloskeys committed no crime whatsoever,” Schwartz said.
“Frankly because the grand jury is not an adversarial process and defense counsel are not allowed in there and I have no idea what was stated to the grand jury and what law was given to the grand jury.”
