SC Justice

Grand jury averaged 39 seconds per case; York County lawyers want 900 indictments tossed

Many York County defense lawyers are claiming that the county grand jury in June did not properly review more than 900 cases presented in a single day and want every indictment issued that month tossed.

The lawyers want a new grand jury after the existing panel failed to do its job, according to a motion filed Friday in York County, SC, court.

Prosecutors fired back, saying say the grand jurors “worked hard” for 10 hours June 14 and that the indictments are “proper and appropriate.”

I agree - all these indictments should be tossed. 39 seconds is barely enough time to read the particulars of the case, let alone to present any evidence.
