The McCloskeys have been indicted by a St. Louis grand jury for evidence tampering ‘unlawful’ use of a weapon:
ST LOUIS POST DISPATCH – Mark and Patricia McCloskey were indicted on felony charges of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering. The indictments were filed under seal Tuesday. St. Louis Circuit Clerk Thomas Kloeppinger said a judge ordered the indictments suppressed but Kloeppinger didn’t know the reason.
The grand jury added a count of evidence tampering after the Circuit Attorney’s Office in July charged the McCloskeys each with one count of unlawful use of a weapon — exhibiting.
A spokeswoman for Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner could not be reached Tuesday.
Since when is brandishing a weapon against an angry mob making death threats illegal?
The attorney for the McCloskeys hasn’t seen the evidence given to the grand jury yet but isn’t surprised at this outcome:
The McCloskeys’ lawyer Joel Schwartz said he didn’t know specifics about the charges but said he’s not surprised a grand jury indicted his clients.
“I’ll certainly be interested in what was presented to the grand jury,” said Schwartz, who plans to request a transcript or recording of the proceedings if such records were made.
I’m not surprised either since Kimberly Gardner is the one prosecuting the case. She’s an absolute hack and all of that will be revealed in court, of this I have no doubt.
