In addition to traditional police investigations, grand jury proceedings are used to indict a suspect based on a probable cause that he or she committed the crime. Prosecutors have the power to decide which witnesses will be called to testify, question the witnesses and have the control to determine if immunity will be granted. The prosecutor then presents the case to the grand jury. After the grand jury deliberates in secret, the grand jury will conclude if the prosecution established a probable cause to believe the accused committed the crime.
