May 4 - Journalist Jeff Proctor's Coverage Of Investigative Grand Juries Shapes The Race For 1st Judicial District Attorney
Freelance journalist Jeff Proctor couldn’t have known the impact he might have had when he began a series of articles on investigative grand juries. But that series now seems to be be playing a big role in the race for First Judicial District Attorney, a position currently held by Jennifer Padgett, appointed by Gov Susana Martinez to fill in for former DA Spence Pacheco. I asked Proctor to begin by describing what investigative Grand juries are and how they’ve been used in cases involving police shootings.
