Grand Jury Results from Daniel Prude Case Released

April 17, 2021

Yesterday, New York Attorney General Letitia James released the 1,200 pages of transcripts from the empanelment. This is the first time in state history that grand jury transcripts from a police-involved death have been made public. Back in February, the grand jury’s decision was to not indict three of the seven Rochester police officers in the Daniel Prude case. Today, the seven officers who responded to the scene and encountered Prude remain suspended. A spokesperson from the City of Rochester has praise New York Attorney General Letitia James for her transparency as they review the transcripts closely.

The two lawyers who represent Prude’s brother and daughter stated that they’ve never seen a grand jury proceeding this long or this in-depth and that it seemed to be prepared. “They did go to great lengths in making sure that the grand jurors knew the law, knew the background. They were clearly prepped and prepared to testify before the grand jury,” says Frank Ciardi, Prude’s daughter’s lawyer.
