Federal Indictment Defense Lawyer Serving Collin County
A grand jury is a group of 12 people that hears a small amount of evidence that an individual committed a crime before deciding whether to indict. It is not a jury trial, but a brief hearing.
If not represented by legal counsel, the defendant is not represented at all and will only find out about the grand jury investigation after he or she receives a letter notifying him or her of indictment for a serious crime. In many cases, the grand jury hears only from the state.
For this reason, it is extremely important to hire an attorney as soon as possible after being asked questions about a crime. Not only will your lawyer ensure that your rights are protected during an investigation, but he or she will also be made aware of what’s going on in the case and can make arrangements to be present during the grand jury hearing.
It can be very beneficial for the grand jury to be presented evidence in your defense, whether it is in the form of a witness or an affidavit. Oftentimes, the grand jury will decide not to indict a person when it has been presented evidence of innocence.
