Ferguson Mayor: No Severance Package for Wilson

Sunday, 30 Nov 2014 01:04 PM

The mayor of Ferguson, Missouri, says police Officer Darren Wilson will not receive a severance package as part of his resignation from the police force.

Mayor James Knowles said Sunday that the St. Louis suburb and Wilson have severed their ties and that Wilson won't receive any further pay or benefits following his resignation Saturday.

Wilson's lawyer says Wilson resigned because threats had been made against other officers and the department because of his continued employment.

A grand jury on Monday decided not to indict Wilson for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown during an August confrontation, sparking widespread demonstrations.
