John Burkoff on a Grand Jury Investigation
Professor John Burkoff was quoted by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in connection with a federal grand jury’s review of an alleged beating of a Pittsburgh teenager by Pittsburgh police officers.
University of Pittsburgh professor John Burkoff said not every FBI investigation advances to the level of a grand jury investigation.
“It often means the investigation is ramped up,” Burkoff said. “But it could mean that the U.S. Attorney’s Office wants to get the feel of a grand jury, whether or not there’s enough to bring a formal indictment.”
