Attorney General James Speaks About Grand Jury Decision Following Death of Daniel Prude

Event Date: 
Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Attorney General Letitia James announced that a grand jury voted not to indict any police officer on charges related to the March 2020 death of Daniel Prude. In the course of the investigation, the Office of the Attorney General concluded that there was sufficient evidence surrounding Mr. Prude’s death to warrant presenting the case to a grand jury. In an effort to provide maximum transparency into the case, Attorney General James proactively released a comprehensive report with detailed descriptions of the events of March 22 and 23, 2020, legal analysis, all the evidence, findings, and recommendations that the office collected during the investigation outside of the grand jury process.
