Hillsborough County Superior Court in New Hampshire is now posting PDF files of its grand jury indictments online. Criminal prosecutors there present evidence to the grand jury to determine if there is sufficient evidence to file charges against accused criminals.
According to an article by Andrew Wolfe, for the first time, the court’s southern district staff has scanned the photocopied indictments into PDF form, and released them to the media.
The author cautions: “Please keep in mind that these indictments are merely accusations at this point, and all of the people charged must be presumed innocent unless they either admit their guilt or are proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt.”
