East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore has announced that over half of the protesters who were arrested following the shooting death of Alton Sterling will not face charges.
Moore says he will not prosecute about 100 of the cases, because the demonstrators were arrested only on misdemeanor counts, simple obstruction of a highway.
