NRS 172.145 Grand jury required to hear and district attorney required to submit known evidence which will explain away charge; invitations and issuance of process for witnesses.

1. The grand jury is not bound to hear evidence for the defendant. It is their duty, however, to weigh all evidence submitted to them, and when they have reason to believe that other evidence within their reach will explain away the charge, they shall order that evidence to be produced, and for that purpose may require the district attorney to issue process for the witnesses.

2. If the district attorney is aware of any evidence which will explain away the charge, the district attorney shall submit it to the grand jury.

3. The grand jury may invite any person, without process, to appear before the grand jury to testify.
