Can I bring a petition to a federal
grand jury based on evidence I have of crimes that have been committed?
I have a question. I am certain I have had Title 18,
sections 241 and 242 or codified in Title 42, violations by city officials
plus constitutional (both US and State) violations. Is this grounds for a
valid petition to a Grand Jury, preferably a federal Grand Jury.
You don't file a petition with a federal grand jury
and, indeed, you have to be very careful about even trying to contact a
federal grand jury.
If you think you have evidence of crimes a federal grand jury should
investigate, you should call your local federal courthouse, ask for the
court clerk who handles grand juries and ask him/her how you can submit
the information you have to the grand jury. If the clerk cannot help
you, ask for the name of the federal judge who supervises grand juries
in your district, call the judge's clerk and ask the clerk how you go
about providing such information to a grand jury. Then do what the clerk
and/or judge tell you to do.
Alternatively, you can contact your local U.S. Attorney's office and
bring the information to them.
