Grand Jury set to convene

The Hunt County grand jury is scheduled to convene Friday, for the final meeting of its six-month term of providing felony indictments for consideration by the 196th District Court.

The current grand jury has returned more than 310 indictments so far. A new grand jury, which will serve the 354th District Court, will be seated in July to run through September.

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 — “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.
