Pretrial Process Paper Role of the Grand Jury The Grand Jury is a process within the judicial system. It helps the prosecutor figure out if he or she has enough evidence to support the charges against an individual. A grand jury is made up of 12 to 23 people who listen to the evidence given by the prosecutor to indict a person by majority vote (Worrall, 2019). Before a trial can be set it must be a true bill and if the jury comes up with a no bill the case will not go trial (Worrall, 2019). In a grand jury, the jurors will see and hear evidence present by the prosecutor. Evidence that will be heard and show are witness testify, evidence, and also hearsay evidence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
