Grand Jury Reports

A grand jury has broad powers to investigate a wide range of criminal offenses and to examine the performance of public officials and public institutions. Grand Jury deliberations are conducted in secret, in conjunction with the State Attorney or a designated assistant state attorney.

The grand jury consists of 15 to 21 members who serve a six-month term of duty with the court. (The term can be extended by the court for up to 90 days to allow for completion of unfinished business.) At least 15 members of the panel must vote in agreement to return an indictment. As prescribed by law, grand jurors are randomly selected from driver license registrations in Escambia County. Grand Jurors are paid on the same basis as trial jurors for every day they meet in session during the term of court.
