Under both Pennsylvania and federal law, a grand jury of regular citizens is the only body that can issue a felony criminal indictment. If the government is preparing to accuse you or your associates of a felony crime, the steps you take during the grand jury proceedings are extremely important.
If you believe you are the target of a grand jury investigation, or you have been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury, you should retain legal counsel right away. At Sebald & Hackwelder, based in Erie, Pennsylvania, we have extensive experience representing Pennsylvania and federal grand jury witnesses, subjects, and targets.
