Does the LA City Attorney Need His Own Grand Jury?

Hosted by

All over the country, District Attorneys prosecute felony crimes using grand juries to investigate and issue subpoenas. City attorneys, who handle misdemeanors, don’t have such power. But LA’s Carmen Trutanich wants it and the State Senate has voted to give it to him. Some Los Angeles City Council members want the Assembly to say, “No.”  We speak with Trutanich and others.
