    From the amount of description given, that’s too entangled to allow legal “transparency”. If the situation is still being resolved, it’s not likely that any additional info will be issued until the DA’s office clarifies. This isn’t a reality TV fantasy. A case can be botched by premature disclosures. Our interests are pedestrian for now.
