Grand jury expected to convene

GREENVILLE — The Hunt County grand jury will convene again Friday, for the next-to-last session of its current term.

Local prosecutors intend to present evidence in felony cases for consideration by the 354th District Court.

The grand jury’s term runs through the end of the year. The panel has returned 234 indictments during its first four monthly meetings.

A new grand jury will be seated in January, to begin serving a six-month term serving the 196th District Court.

The specifics of the cases which are presented to the grand jury are kept confidential until such time as the panel decides whether or not to issue indictments.

The grand jury can either issue indictments — or “true bills” — or determine its investigation did not find sufficient evidence to issue an indictment, in which case a “no bill” is issued.

The indictments are issued open and made public, or are issued sealed if the subject named in the indictment has yet to be arrested and arraigned on the pending charge.
