Grand Jury Handbook - 2015
The Jury Composition Reform Act of 2011 (2011 HB 415), which was enacted by the legislature makes numerous changes to the laws governing both grand and trial juries in Georgia after July 1, 2012. The current edition of the Grand Jury Handbook incorporates these changes as well as a number of changes to Georgia law that took effect in 2013, 2014 and 2015. These include the new Evidence Code and Juvenile Code as well as amendments to the “Jury Composition Reform Act of 2011” Ga. L. 2011, p. 59, which were enacted by the General Assembly in 2014 and 2015.
Please note that, due to budget constraints, the Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia will not print the 2015 edition of the Grand Jury Handbook. Custom covers, including your district attorney's name and photo, are available to district attorney offices upon request.
