St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch has given his first press interview since Nov. 24, when he announced the grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson for the controversial shooting of Michael Brown.
In an interview with KTRS, McCulloch explained some of his decisions about the grand jury proceedings — including the fact that some witnesses lied under oath about what they saw.
"I knew that no matter how I handled this there'd be criticism of it. So if I didn't put those witnesses on, then we'd be discussing now why I didn't put those witnesses on. ... I thought it was much more important that the grand jury hear everything, whatever people have to say," McCulloch said.
