None Indicted in MOVE Bombing But Jury Calls Act "Reprehensible"
The investigation of city officials
Ultimately, no city officials were ever charged with a crime for the bombing and the resulting fire. The grand jury that overheard the case used blistering language to condemn Mayor Goode, but voted not to file charges by an overwhelming majority. While this damaged Goode's image, he managed to survive politically; he even won re-election. The reputations of most other city officials, including Police Commissioner Gregore Sambor and Fire Commissioner William C. Richmond, were permanently tarnished.
