FAQ > What is the grand jury?

The Grand Jury is a group of citizens that meet to listen to the prosecutor present cases and request they be charged against the accused. The Grand Jury meets in secret and the accused is not present.* Usually the prosecutor calls just one witness, a police officer that worked on the case.  The officer will then tell the Grand Jury why the police want to charge the accused with a crime and the prosecutor will suggest the crimes the Grand Jury should charge.
