What is Grand Jury?

Grand Jury is simply the process by which we determine if we can move forward with felony charges. In Grand Jury, any victims or witnesses involved in the crime are brought individually into a meeting room with a senior Deputy District Attorney and a panel of seven grand jurors who are serving from the community. They ask a handful of questions to confirm the details of the event and that’s it. All told it usually only takes 10 or 15 minutes per witness.
