Appearing before a grand jury is stressful

Have you been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury? If so, you know that this is sure to be a stressful time in your life. You could be requested to appear before a grand jury for a number of reasons. For example, maybe you are the target of a criminal investigation. Or maybe you are being asked to do so as a witness. Either way, it's a must to know what to expect, how to answer questions, and what you can do to get through this process without making any grave mistakes.

It may not be fair, but grand juries typically favor the government. Furthermore, it is possible that you could be led down a path that leads to making a false statement. If this happens, you could face a 1001 charge, which is "knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements.'

Even if you were called before a grand jury as a witness, one mistake could lead to a situation in which you are targeted with some type of charge.

To protect yourself and ensure that you don't get taken advantage of, it's a good idea to receive legal advice. You won't be able to take your attorney into the grand jury room with you, but he or she can provide you with the guidance you require to handle any situation that arises.

If you need any assistance, don't hesitate to contact Kurt Kerns, Attorney At Law. You are in a difficult position, but that doesn't mean you have to give in and hope for the best. There are steps you can take to put this in the past.
