USA Today featured Haub Law Professor Bennett Gershman in "'Release the transcripts': Ben Crump slams decision in Breonna Taylor case, calls out systemic racism in the legal system"

Bennett Gershman, a nationally recognized expert on prosecutorial ethics who teaches law at Pace University in New York, said under those rules prosecutors could elect to reveal their grand jury recommendations or keep them confidential. He said he is not aware of any prosecutor being sanctioned for disclosing a recommendation. 

Grand jury proceedings are secret for four reasons, the U.S. Supreme Court has said:

  • To prevent those under investigation from interfering with witnesses;

  • to encourage witnesses to speak freely;

  • to reduce the chance that a person about to be indicted will flee;

  • and to protect innocent people who may be grand jury targets but are never indicted.
