Legal Answers
44 Questions Answered
Q. What can I report a town resident for going through a "road closed" sign?
A: Thanks for posting your question. I represent only folks charged with a crime so I would do not actually bring any charges. However, in the past I have represented citizens that have been charged for entering a closed road with various violations. I would think that your local PD would be able issue tickets based the conduct you described for the following offenses: reckless conduct, reckless driving, negligent driving, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and disobeying traffic control device.
Q. If a grand jury indicts someone, what are the defendant rights ? Do they get to know what was said at the grand jury?
A: Grand jury hearings are secret in NH and federally. A Grand Jury considers evidence presented by the government and decides whether there is sufficient evidence to formally charge a person with committing a crime. Secrecy prevents those under scrutiny from fleeing or importuning the grand jurors, encourages full disclosure by witnesses, and protects the innocent from unwarranted prosecution, among other things. The long-established rule of grand jury secrecy is enshrined in Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e), which provides that government attorneys and the jurors themselves, among others, “must not disclose a matter occurring before the grand jury.” Accordingly, as a general matter, persons and entities external to the grand jury process are precluded from obtaining transcripts of grand jury testimony or other documents or information that would reveal what took place in the proceedings, even if the grand jury has concluded its work and even if the information is sought pursuant to otherwise-valid legal processes
Q. If I have a confession from my ex cell mate should I contact the prosecutor and could it help me reduce my charges?
A: You should contact your defense lawyer. You should never speak with the prosecutor directly without your lawyer. If the information you have is valuable your lawyer should be able to assist you without risking any admission or other problems. Do not talk to the prosecutor or police!
