The Dallas County District Attorney’s office is still preparing a criminal case to present to a grand jury. Although she was charged with manslaughter for Jean’s death, DA Faith Johnson said the grand jury could upgrade that charge.
Chief Hall also announced changes to the police department’s administrative procedures. She told the city council’s Public Safety Committee that she is ending the 72-hour wait period for obtaining statements from officers who are involved in shootings.
