No Charges for Dr. Anna Pou

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (AP) — A grand jury Tuesday declined to indict Dr. Anna Pou, the surgeon accused of killing four seriously ill patients in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The Orleans Parish grand jury had been investigating the charges since March.

Assistant District Attorney Michael Morales, who conducted the grand jury hearings, had asked the grand jurors to return one charge of second-degree murder and nine of murder conspiracy.

The grand jurors sat calmly while the judge read the possible charges and each response of “no true bill.”



  1. Wow. How on earth did they round up a grand jury with a modicum of common sense in America? Now the overzealous prosecutor should have to pay the expenses incurred by the accused Dr. and nurses in their defense as well as the destruction of their careers because we know that even though they weren’t charged the public will still view them as guilty thanks to the media sensationalism.

  2. I’m sure that something like going through all of the experiences around Katrina do something to change someone’s amount of common sense. It is good to hear this came back. I cannot begin to fathom what Dr. Pou and her nurses went through.
