Tony Stewart is an innocent man.
On Wednesday afternoon, it was announced that a grand jury concluded that no charges would be filed against Stewart in regard to the August 9th incident that took the life of Kevin Ward, Jr.
Two charges were submitted to the grand jury: 2nd-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. Around two dozen witnesses testified, and two videos were examined as evidence. The jury deliberated in less than an hour. Toxicology reports also revealed that Ward was under the influence of marijuana, “enough to impair his judgment.”
The Ward family may file a civil suit against Stewart, yet that’s to be determined. Though the biggest adversity is over, it’s important to keep Tony Stewart and the Ward family in our thought.
