This is incredible...I wonder if the statute of limitations is up for the original crime? Wouldn't that be great? lol

The record-breaking standoff came to an anticlimactic conclusion: the case was dismissed in December 2014, when the local district attorney left office. But, news of the case’s dismissal never reached the barricaded Gray family of the sheriff’s department until now.

Guess I should have read it? lol That is both good and bad. Good for him in the end but bad that the system is such a mess and it took so long to get it ended. Just incredible!
