The grand jury's job is to determine whether there is enough evidence for a defendant to go to trial. Typically, the grand jury is given a case after a General Sessions Court judge has bound it over.

In this and other unusual cases, prosecutors will bypass the General Sessions step and present investigators' evidence directly to the grand jury, explained Executive Assistant District Attorney Neal Pinkston.

"Sometimes you have one when investigation takes longer," he said.

Pinkston said he could not comment on the grand jury's decision since the decision is made in secret.

"They have to determine probable cause to issue the indictment, and they didn't find that in this case," he said.

Caretakers of several local children killed in recent shooting accidents have seen varied outcomes once their cases reached court systems.

A previous Hamilton County grand jury decided to indict Samantha and Thomas Wallace in the 2010 death of their 2-year-old daughter Camron Wallace, who was accidentally shot and killed by her 5-year-old brother.

The couple is awaiting trial later this year on a charge of criminally negligent homicide.

In Bradley County, a Tennessee Highway Patrol lieutenant, his wife and his two daughters were all indicted in the death of his 3-year-old granddaughter Kydalynn Graham, who accidentally shot herself with her grandfather's weapon last May.

All four Grahams have their next court date set for March 4.

In Whitfield County, Ga., the district attorney's office decided not to pursue charges against a 12-year-old boy who accidentally shot his 11-year-old sister, Cassie Culpepper, in the back of a truck last June.

So they have selective negligence in this county.

Charged with murder? No, neglect? yes.

If I leave my car's parking break off while on a steep hill, I am neglecting the safety of others. should it hurt someone, i ought to not only lose the car, but possibly face prison for murdering though neglect.

A pistol and a car are deadly weapons... They aren't toy's, they aren't your medications, they are deadly weapons and if you are to be a owner/operator of them, you will treat them as such.

When they are within the reach of a child, namely one who cannot open locked boxes or display cases... You, not the child are at fault.

Evidently the jury has decided differently. The jury can blame themselves for not stating that you the owner/operator are solely responsible for the weapon.

Have you ever heard one of those stories that you know that you have not heard the WHOLE story??? That is what this is for me. It was not the kids fault that is for sure but the rest of it does not make since. His gun his responsibility.

fj,

Nk had better hope that if he is ever charged with a crime, he is not judged by a jury of "HIS" peers.

Liberals cannot use what they do not have possess.

AZ from what I understand there have been indictments handed down in the same county for children shot by unattended firearms. Unlike libtards I can't say without hearing facts.

It wasn't in the article. I'm using common sense. Something you seem to be short of.
