What Is a “Grand Jury” and Why Was the Grand Jury Dropped in Great Britain?

A grand jury is convened to determine if the prosecution has a case against a criminal suspect.

Los Angeles has more judges than all of France, while in Washington, D.C., there is one lawyer for every twenty-five men, women, and children.
