List of grand jury action

Jan. 12, 2013 @ 08:31 PM

The Sevier County Grand Jury returned dozens of indictments this week.

A grand jury is a panel of randomly selected county residents who meet in private to review criminal allegations to determine whether there is enough evidence to justify proceeding with a trial. It does not determine guilt or innocence.

A new grand jury is selected every two months and meets at that time to review allegations.

If the group determines there is not enough evidence to merit a trial, it can return a finding of “no true bill.” If it finds there is enough evidence to proceed, it can return an indictment or a presentment.

Indictments are returned in cases where the charges against the accused party have already been announced in general sessions court, and a judge has sent the matter to the grand jury. Presentments are returned when the grand jury issues charges that had not been announced previously. Sealed presentments are kept secret until the defendants are arrested.

Names that are listed more than once represent people who faced multiple indictments.
