Prosecutors do not have a say in grand jury selection. This grand jury of 12 was composed of 7 males and 5 females. 9 were white and 3 were black. A minimum of 9 juror votes is required to reach agreement. It is not the duty of the grand jury to determine guilt or innocence. The grand jury solely determines (via testimony and material evidence) if enough convincing evidentiary material was presented to warrant an indictment for either a singular charge or multiple charges. If so, then the accused is bound over for trial.
