You claimed that no one testifies because they would gain immunity. Pointing out that anyone can sign a waiver and testify. Your anecdotal evidence is worthless. Plenty of defendants and potential defendants sign a waiver and testify. And understand, on a Grand Jury OR a Petit Jury, you and see and hear what they allow you to see and hear.


Totally agree with you on the fact that they only allow you to see and hear what they want you to hear.

The murder case in the home much background info was kept from us to not sway our decision..

Afterward the DA told us the back story.

Even to the extent that a DA may put a particular case into a particular Grand Jury if he thinks the defendant may get off with a different GJ. There are normally several running at the same time.

In Riverhead there are two running.

But for 1 week we got every case because the other jury had a case with over 100 witnesses... Bar fight and I believe someone was killed.

No replies mentioned the suggestion of taking notes in the article.

 

That seems like a really bad idea to me.

First rule: Never talk to the police

Second Rule: Don't forget the First Rule

 

If you feel compelled to speak, speak thus: "I will answer all your questions once my lawyer gets here."

 

Once your lawyer gets there, you will say "On the advice of counsel I decline to answer under the 5th Amendment."

I have the names and numbers of five good criminal law guys with 24-hour answering service on my phone  and in my wallet. Probably better to memorize just one.

 

You can call a relative or friend if you don't know a lawyer's phone number.

 

If you fail to connect up on the first call, I believe they can keep you locked up until your arraignment, at which time you can ask the judge for the PD or for permission to make additional calls.

 

In any event, say nothing until a lawyer is with you.

We usually disagree but this time...even a broken clock is right twice a day!

100% spot on.
