FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK, July 10, 2014 – Today, after nine months of “utter” silence by government officials we were not surprisingly told by the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia they are ‘declining prosecution’ because after an exhaustive review of the available evidence they will not be able to meet the “willfulness” standard as required by various criminal statutes. There is no finding that the police use of force against Miriam Iris Carey was “JUSTIFIED.”
On January 30, 2014, the Carey Family, filed a wrongful death claim against the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and the United States Capitol Police seeking $75 million dollars on behalf of The Estate of Miriam Iris Carey, Mother Idella Carey and minor child EF to compensate them for their great loss of a daughter, mother, friend and confidant.
“Now that the criminal inquiry has concluded, the Carey Family will continue with its fight for Miriam’s and her minor child EF’S rights. The United States Attorney’s legal position has not changed the Carey Family’s legal position. Again, after an exhaustive review of all publicly available data, the Carey Family has concluded the shooting of Miriam Iris Carey was “NOT JUSTIFIED.” The closing of the criminal inquiry will now open the opportunity to obtain further data from various government agencies to support the Carey Family’s legal position,” says Eric Sanders.
