3 Things You Need To Know About Grand Juries

3 Things You Need To Know About Grand Juries
The grand jury system is an important aspect of the American criminal justice system. As Steve Palmer, host of the Lawyer Talk podcast, points out in this episode, the grand jury is a group of jurors assembled by the county prosecutor to vote on whether there is enough evidence to indict someone on a felony. However, the grand jury system is not without controversy and questions about its fairness and transparency have been raised.One of the biggest issues with the grand jury system is the prosecutor's control over the proceedings. As Steve notes, the prosecutor has control over the proceedings and can present the case in a way that incorporates obvious defenses to prevent an indictment. This means that defendants do not have the same rights they would have in a trial by jury within a courtroom. For example, defendants do not have the right to appear in front of a grand jury and testify in their own case. While some prosecutors may invite defendants to testify, it is not a guaranteed right.However, witnesses can be subpoenaed to testify in front of a grand jury and have the right to an attorney. The attorney cannot be present in the grand jury room but can advise the witness outside the room and the witness can assert their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent if their responses may incriminate them. This is an important protection for witnesses who may be intimidated or coerced into providing false or misleading testimony.Another issue with the grand jury system is its secrecy. As Steve points out, grand jury proceedings are done in secret and are not a trial by jury within a courtroom. While this secrecy is meant to protect the integrity of the investigation, it also means that defendants and their attorneys do not have access to the evidence presented to the grand jury. This lack of transparency can make it difficult for defendants to mount an effective defense and can contribute to a perception of unfairness.Despite these concerns, grand juries have enormous power, particularly on the federal level, and can issue subpoenas for information and testimony. This power has been used in high-profile cases, such as the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. However, the grand jury system remains controversial and questions about its fairness and transparency are likely to continue.The grand jury system is an important aspect of the American criminal justice system, but it is not without controversy. As Steve notes, the prosecutor's control over the proceedings, lack of transparency, and limited rights for defendants are all issues that have been raised about the grand jury system. While grand juries have enormous power, there is a need for continued scrutiny and debate about how they are used and whether they are fair and transparent.Submit your questions to www.lawyertalkpodcast.com.Recorded at Channel 511, a production of 511 South High Media LLC.Stephen E.

3 Things You Need To Know About The Appeals Process

3 Things You Need To Know About The Appeals Process
In the world of law, an appeal is not a retrial. This is a common misconception that many people have when they are facing legal issues. In reality, an appeal is a process that can only argue legal mistakes made during the trial, not the facts of the case. Appellate lawyers have limitations in their access to evidence and are only able to look at the trial record.Steve Palmer shares these insights on this episode of the Lawyer Talk podcast. He emphasizes the importance of understanding the limitations of the appellate process, as well as the options available for addressing issues that were not included in the trial record.One option for addressing issues outside of the trial record is through post-conviction proceedings. However, these proceedings have different deadlines and requirements than direct appeals, making it crucial for those involved to have a clear understanding of the legal process and their options.Winning an appeal does not necessarily mean that the case is won and the individual can go home. Often, it simply means a new trial with different rules in place. It is important to be vigilant about post-conviction remedies and to ask questions to ensure that the attorney understands the deadlines and requirements.Understanding the limitations of the appellate process and being aware of post-conviction remedies are crucial for those involved in legal matters. This episode provides valuable insights and information for those seeking a deeper understanding of the legal process.Submit your questions to www.lawyertalkpodcast.com.Recorded at Channel 511, a production of 511 South High Media LLC.Stephen E.

3 Things You Need To Know About Finding A Lawyer
When it comes to legal representation, finding the right lawyer can make all the difference. This is especially true when dealing with cases in unfamiliar locations. Legal professionals must have a thorough understanding of local practices and procedures, which is not always the case for out-of-state lawyers.Steve talks about the importance of finding a lawyer who is comfortable and experienced in unfamiliar locations, the advantages of having a lawyer who is both likable and respectful, and how to go about co-counseling with local attorneys. Finding the right lawyer for a case in an unfamiliar location requires thorough research and consideration. Lawyers must possess not only great litigation skills but also a likable personality and an understanding of local practices. It is important for lawyers to be honest with their clients about their level of experience and to cocounsel with local attorneys when necessary. By following these guidelines, clients can receive the best possible representation for their case.Submit your questions to www.lawyertalkpodcast.com.Recorded at Channel 511, a production of 511 South High Media LLC.Stephen E.

Columbus Council Approves New Gun-Control Laws - Legal or Not?

The more you suppress this, the more it becomes "attractive" to the wrong element.Columbus council approves new gun-control law amid questions over its legality. Amazingly, two of the three legs of this legislation bring "duh" moments. But the kicker, this bans “large capacity magazines” that can hold 30 or more rounds or can be converted to accept that many rounds. This misdemeanor would result in a mandatory 180 consecutive days in jail without work release, and potentially up to one year, and a $1,500 fine. "We have to do something" as one council person puts it.When covid-19 broke out, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty’s work put him on the front lines. Realizing that the mental, physical, and economic toll of lockdowns was catastrophic, he began to protest that the cure was worse than the disease—an intolerable heresy.

He fought back, in the courts and in the media, and has become a reliable source of truth amid official obfuscation and censorship.
