Will County Attorney for Grand Jury Representation

Will County Grand Jury Attorney

Lawyer for Illinois Grand Jury Trials and Prison Review Board Hearings

Have you received a subpoena to testify before a grand jury in Will County or DuPage County? Do you even know what the role of a grand jury is? If you are not sure, you are not alone, as the grand jury process is one most commonly misunderstood aspects of the criminal justice process. At the Law Offices of Blake Stone, P.C., we assist witnesses of all types who have been called to testify in grand jury proceedings.

Grand Jury Proceedings in Illinois

When a person is arrested in Illinois on suspicion of a felony offense, he or she must be given a preliminary hearing or be indicted by a grand jury within 30 days of his or her arrest. While a preliminary hearing is held in front of a judge, a grand jury is a panel of ordinary citizens tasked with determining if there is probable cause that the defendant has committed the alleged offense. During a grand jury hearing, the prosecution presents evidence and witnesses to show that the case should continue. As a practical matter, many prosecutors favor grand juries because they almost always result in indictments.

In making a decision on whether to indict, however, a grand jury may conduct an investigation into the details of the case. This means that the grand jury has the power to subpoena witnesses or even the target of the investigation. If you have been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury, Attorney Blake Stone can help you understand the process and your rights. Saying the wrong thing could be disastrous, and Mr. Stone is committed to providing the responsible guidance you need, either as a grand jury witness or as a potential criminal defendant.

Illinois Prisoner Review Board Representation

In the state of Illinois, the Illinois Prisoner Review Board (PRB) oversees release conditions of those who set to leave correctional facilities, revoke and restores credit for good conduct by inmates, and conducts parolee hearings. It is also the responsibility of the PRB to make recommendations to the governor regarding executive clemency or pardons.

At the Law Offices of Blake Stone, P.C., we understand that your need for qualified representation extends well beyond a plea agreement or conviction and sentencing. Whether you are scheduled for a PRB hearing to determine your eligibility for parole or you have already been paroled and have been accused of violating the terms of your release, we are prepared to help you. Regardless of your current situation, you still have rights and we will work to ensure they are not compromised in any way.
