Grand Jury Decides Not To Hand Down Indictments in Mallory Death Investigation

After nine hours of hearing testimony from 15 teenagers on Wednesday, a Lubbock grand jury decided the District Attorney's office will not pursue criminal charges in the Mallory death investigation.

District Attorney Bill Sowder says they sent out 19 subpoenas, but only 15 showed up. All were minors. Sowder says he is not at liberty to discuss why the grand jury decided to "decline issuance of indictments to any individuals."

Last Tuesday, the grand jury heard from the investigating police officers. However, they told courtroom officials they needed to hear more testimony from the witnesses who were there the night 16-year-old Thomas Mallory overdosed on ecstasy.

Mallory's family is pursuing a civil lawsuit against one Lubbock doctor, and eight teenagers.
