After a brief legal battle, one member of the grand jury from the Breonna Taylor case has come forward with new information about the process.
Through a press release yesterday, the individual, identified as Juror 1, explained that the grand jury was presented no other charges other than the 3 counts of wanton endangerment against former detective Brett Hankison. The juror said that when the grand jury asked about additional charges, they were told that there were none, as the the prosecutors felt they couldn’t “make them stick”. The juror said that the grand jury didn’t agree that certain actions were justified, nor that the indictment should have been the only charge in the case. The statement was in conjunction with Juror number 2, who also came forward.
