So, what is a grand jury? 


A grand jury is a legal body that is empowered to conduct official proceedings to investigate potential criminal conduct and determine whether criminal charges should be brought. Its duties and functions are distinct from those of a trial jury. Here is a summary of what a grand jury is and its duties:What is a Grand Jury?
  • Composition: A grand jury typically consists of 16 to 23 citizens, depending on the jurisdiction.
  • Purpose: Its primary function is to evaluate whether there is sufficient evidence to indict (formally accuse) a suspect and proceed to trial.
  • Proceedings: The proceedings are conducted in secrecy to protect the reputation of potential defendants and to encourage witness cooperation.
  • Duration: Grand juries can be convened for a specific period, ranging from a month to a year or more, depending on the case load and jurisdiction.
Duties of a Grand Jury
  1. Investigating Potential Crimes:
    • Reviewing Evidence: Grand juries review evidence presented by prosecutors, including witness testimony, documents, and other materials.
    • Subpoena Power: They have the authority to issue subpoenas to compel witnesses to testify or produce documents.
  2. Determining Probable Cause:
    • Indictment Decisions: The grand jury decides if there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed and that the accused person is responsible.
    • Issuing Indictments: If the grand jury finds sufficient evidence, it issues an indictment, formally charging the person with a crime.
    • No True Bill: If the evidence is insufficient, the grand jury issues a "no true bill," meaning no charges will be filed.
  3. Protecting Against Unjust Prosecution:
    • Screening Cases: By evaluating evidence before a case goes to trial, the grand jury acts as a preliminary check to ensure that individuals are not unjustly prosecuted without probable cause.
  4. Advisory Role:
    • Reports and Recommendations: In some jurisdictions, grand juries can issue reports and make recommendations on matters of public concern, including public corruption or the functioning of governmental institutions.
Key Features
  • Secrecy: Grand jury proceedings are typically closed to the public to protect the accused's reputation and to ensure the integrity of the investigation.
  • One-Sided Presentation: Unlike a trial, the defense does not have the right to present its case or cross-examine witnesses during grand jury proceedings.
  • Non-Adversarial: The process is investigative rather than adversarial, focusing on whether there is sufficient evidence to charge someone with a crime rather than proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.


In this episode we take a look at the peril facing Diddy and why things just went from bad for him to a whole lot worse.
