Can a grand jury indict a ham sandwich? If you’ve been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury, you don’t want to find out firsthand. Without solid, and experienced legal advice and representation, a grand jury can indict you, and you could end up wasting years of your life behind prison bars.

What does it mean if you’ve been called before a grand jury?

The government must present evidence to a grand jury before they can charge someone with a federal crime. Unfortunately, grand juries are incredibly sympathetic to the prosecution and are notorious for giving the government whatever it wants in a criminal case. It’s not in your best interest to appear before a grand jury either as a witness or as the target of a criminal investigation.

Grand juries are one-sided affairs that favor the federal government, and if you have to go in front of a grand jury, you’re legally barred from having your attorney in the room with you while the prosecution asks questions. These questions can be very leading and are designed to trick you into saying something incriminating.

But if you hire an attorney as soon as you’re ordered to testify in front of a grand jury, your attorney can advise you on how to best answer the questions, so you don’t incriminate yourself. Even if you’re called as a witness, your answers can cause you to become a target of a criminal charge. And if you hire an attorney, they can wait outside the courtroom during the testimony. You can ask the judge to let you speak to your attorney outside of the courtroom if you’re asked a confusing, harmful question. But without representation and proper legal coaching, your future hangs in a precarious balance.
