What is Grand Jury?

The Grand Jury determines that a person should be charged or prosecuted for a criminal act when it finds there is probable cause to believe the person has committed an offense. Also, it protects the innocent from unfounded accusation of crime and from the trouble, expense, and anxiety of a trial when there is insufficient evidence to believe the accused is guilty of any criminal offense.
