As we await the news on the shooting death of Mike Brown, our news partner shares the process on what would actually happen if Ferguson officer Darren Wilson is indicted.

Chet Pleban said Wilson will be afforded the opportunity to turn himself in if the Grand Jury elects to indict him.

“If there is an indictment, someone from the prosecutor’s office or the police department will contact the lawyers representing Wilson make arrangements for Wilson to surrender himself,” Pleban said.

After being arrested, Pleban said Wilson would go through the regular booking procedure.

“He’ll be fingerprinted, he’ll be photographed,” Pleban said.

If Wilson is unable to make bond, Pleban said he would stay in jail until a bond reduction hearing is held. At that hearing, Pleban said the Brown family will have its first opportunity to face Wilson in court.

“The victim’s family would have a right to be present and be heard,” Pleban said.
