ROCKLAND COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE ANNOUNCES FIRST GRAND JURY TERM INDICTMENTS SINCE THE CORONAVIRUS SHUTDOWN

Rockland County District Attorney Thomas E. Walsh II announced that the first Grand Jury term, since the Coronavirus shutdown, ended today, August 12, 2020. This Grand Jury was very busy as there was a back log of serious cases that were put on hold due to the pandemic. During the four-week term that started on July 17,2020, the Grand Jury handed up twenty-five Indictments, which included the most serious of crimes: Murders, Rapes, Assaults, Robberies, Burglaries, Public Corruption, Domestic Violence and Drug cases. We have many more cases that must be indicted due to the Governor’s Executive Orders that prohibited Grand Jury to sit during the pandemic. The People of Rockland County can rest assured that the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office remains committed to keeping the wheels of Justice moving forward within the guidelines provided by the Office of Court Administration.
