The Ferguson police officer who shot dead unarmed black teenager Michael Brown is unlikely to ever return to policing, his lawyer has said.
"Realistically speaking, Darren will never be a police officer again, and he understands that," Jim Towey told NBC station KSDK.
"Going forward it will be school, and trying to carve out a new niche, new career, for he and his family."
Neal Bruntraeger, Wilson's other lawyer, said his client understood the risk he was taking by speaking publicly for the first time, revealing that people had "offered bounties on his life" after the fatal shooting.
Armies of protesters took to the streets following the Ferguson shooting decision, in a sign of the monumental challenge now facing America.
The police officer who shot dead Michael Brown says he has a clear conscience over his actions.
