Grand Jury & Federal Grand Jury in Texas
If you are charged with a felony offense, you have the right to have your case heard by a Grand Jury. A Grand Jury consists of a group of citizens who sit in a room and listen to a case to determine if probable cause exists. Usually ,during a Grand Jury Investigation, all the jurors do in making their determination is to listen to a prosecutor present second hand information from the police.
In some cases, before deciding to charge a person with a felony, a prosecutor or a Grand Jury will initiate a Grand Jury Investigation and issue subpoenas for witnesses and evidence in order to make their determination. You may be given the opportunity to present testimony or evidence before a Grand Jury before they decide to indict you with a felony offense.
