A grand jury is a powerful tool that federal prosecutors can use to investigate and gather information about white collar crimes. The grand jury has the power to subpoena witnesses to testify and produce documents for review in an effort to gain information about an individual’s involvement in a white collar crime and to see if there is enough evidence to indict that person.
The grand jury has several advantages over normal police investigations, including:
- The power to subpoena individuals to appear before it or produce documents
- Lay participation
- Closed proceedings
- Grants of immunity to witnesses
- The federal prosecutor’s role in leading the investigation
Being called before the grand jury as a witness, subject or target is a serious matter. It is important to speak to a white collar criminal defense attorney if you receive a subpoena, especially if you suspect you may be the target of a criminal investigation.
I would recommend her to anyone. She was responsive, charges dropped, and I felt confident in my defense.
