An expert in criminal law and procedure, Professor Ric Simmons was recently interviewed for a piece in The Hill titled, “Breonna Taylor grand juror remarks underscore system unfairness, say critics.”

“Police use-of-force cases are by far the most common when we see this issue where the prosecutors want to make it look as though they are moving forward with the case but they,” he said. “In truth, don’t want to indict, and so they use a grand jury sort of as a political cover.”
