Office of the DeKalb County District Attorney

Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit

Sherry Boston, District Attorney

Grand Jury

The Grand Jury is made up of 16 to 23 citizens who are randomly selected from driver’s license and voter’s registration lists. In Georgia a regular grand jury has both criminal and civil investigative powers. It can indict a person or persons for a crime and review government operations and make recommendations to improve its services. 

It is the Grand Jury coordinator's responsibility to ensure that these processes are handled professionally and correctly. Grand Jury Coordinator Jamita Vortice-Bowden along with other District Attorney’s staff play a key role in the Grand Jury selection process.

Grand Jury coordinator responsibilities include:
  • Handling all grand jury matters
  • Acting as a liaison for investigators, attorneys and other agencies and court personnel
  • Scheduling all witnesses to testify
  • Acting as a point of contact for the grand jurors
