The grand did meet I do KNOW THAT FOR A FACT!! They handed down indictments. However I don't know if her case was presented!


Well the Grand Jury has NOT met since May 14th when the incident happened. They met on May 11th this month.


Apparently you didn't read very well. Because ALL I said was the Grand Jury DID MEET, BUT didn't know IF HER CASE was presented.

Don't believe that the Grand Jury has met since this occurred so they have NOT indicted her yet. After all these years you would think you would know how the system works and get the stories straight,
