Statement Regarding Grand Jury Delay

October 10, 2006 00:00


STATEMENT FROM CHIEF ROSANNE SIZER REGARDING THE JAMES CHASSE, JR. GRAND JURY DELAY “The Police Bureau has been informed by the District Attorney’s Office that the decision by the Grand Jury reviewing the in-custody death of Mr. James Chasse, Jr. will be delayed until next week. This delay is because Mr. Chasse’s family has asked that an additional witness be called and a member of the Grand Jury will be unavailable until next week.

The Police Bureau is disappointed because we have been anxious to share all of the factual information regarding this investigation. However, allowing Mr. Chasse’s family to participate in the Grand Jury process is ultimately in the best interest of the entire community.

The Police Bureau stands ready to openly discuss the entire investigation as soon as the Grand Jury completes its work.”
