Balancing the Scales of Due Process: The Conservative Case for Grand Jury Reform in Texas

The entire paper is a good read.

Among the very important TPPF recomendations….

  1. Entire Transcript or Record of Grand Jury Proceeding &
    able to be publicly disclosed by the defendant.
  2. Presence of Counsel
  3. Require Exculpatory Evidence to Be Presented
  4. Preclude a Subsequent Grand Jury Without New Material Evidence
  5. Loser Pays Provision (to prevent overzealous prosecutors)
