(CNN) – The family of Michael Brown is at home, awaiting the announcement of a grand jury decision into the shooting death of their teenage son.
The Browns had heard an announcement would be made late Monday, but they learned that the grand jury had reached a decision from CNN.
Lawyer Daryl Parks, co-counsel for the Brown Family, said he has "no explanation whatsoever" as to why the family was not contacted more quickly.
Parks had received word about the timing of the announcement, and the governor's and prosecutor's press conferences.
"So obviously they had shared information with others, but not with this family as they made their planning on their decisions," Parks told CNN. "That type of treatment by the prosecutor's office certainly leaves a lot more to be desired by this family."
"It gives them strong concerns about how they'll be handled going forward in this case as well," he said.
