What is a grand jury? When does it meet? Are the sessions public?
A grand jury consists of no fewer than 15, and no more than 21, persons selected from a pool of petit jurors. A new grand jury is selected in the spring and fall each year. There must be a quorum of at least 15 grand jurors present at any one time in order to proceed. A deputy clerk must be present at the end of each session to receive and file any presentments, indictment or no true bills filed by the grand jury. Tentative session dates are agreed to, and set by, the sitting grand jurors. Grand jury proceedings are secret and not open to the public.
