What is the purpose of a grand jury in Maryland?

In controversial or high-profile cases involving violent crimes or allegations of wrongdoing by a public official, a Maryland prosecutor may choose not to make the charging decision alone, but instead to convene a grand jury to determine whether the individual should be indicted. A grand jury is a very important component of the criminal justice system, but unlike a criminal trial jury, it does not render a guilty or not guilty verdict. Instead, a grand jury is a group of people who are selected and then asked to decide whether criminal charges should be filed against a potential defendant after viewing evidence presented by the prosecutor. The potential crimes that a grand jury investigates are usually felony charges. Grand juries usually have between 16 and 23 members, while a traditional courtroom jury has between six and 12. They are chosen by the local court system the same way that regular jurists are selected.
