Georgia v. TownsAnnotate this Case
In 2015, a grand jury indicted Ronnie Towns, charging him with murder and armed robbery. Two years later, Towns filed a motion to dismiss the indictment, alleging that the grand jury was unlawfully constituted because some of the grand jurors were not selected randomly. Following an evidentiary hearing, the trial court agreed that two of the grand jurors were not selected randomly, and it dismissed the indictment. The State appealed. Finding no reversible error, however, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
