Multimedia Overview: A State Grand Jury at Work
- Page 1 of 9



This section gives you a photographic tour of a state grand jury at work.

In most states, the basic state grand jury is a county grand jury. It’s called into session by a county court, and meets in a county courthouse, like the one shown at the left.

The state grand jury that is featured in this section is an Ohio county grand jury. It was called into session by a county common pleas court judge, and meets in the courthouse.

This grand jury meets twice a month, on the first and third Mondays of each month. It meets at 9:00 in the morning, and stays in session as long as the prosecutors need it. Usually, the grand jury will sit for between one and two hours, although it may sit for longer or may meet only briefly if prosecutors do not have any cases they want to present to the grand jury.
