ATLANTA – The parents of a Florida man who died after Georgia sheriff's deputies repeatedly used stun guns on him say they're very disappointed in a prosecutor's decision not to seek charges.
Coweta Judicial Circuit District Attorney Peter Skandalakis on Monday announced that no charges would be filed in the case, saying that although Chase Sherman's death was tragic, it was not a criminal matter.
Video from the body cameras of Coweta County sheriff's deputies shows deputies struggling with Sherman in the back of an SUV until he's still and they later realize he's not breathing. Sherman was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Sherman's mother, Mary Ann Sherman, said Wednesday that she's angry and disappointed that the district attorney didn't even present the case to a grand jury.
