“Citizen grand jury disbands in Kobach case without returning indictment”

Lawrence Journal-World:

A citizen-initiated grand jury that was impaneled in January to investigate alleged election-related crimes by former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office has adjourned without bringing an indictment, according to a court document in the case.

After reviewing the citizen petition, exhibits and testimony of witnesses, the grand jury found “no cognizable crime under the laws of the State of Kansas,” said the document, obtained Wednesday by the Journal-World.
Otherwise, as with any type of grand jury, the panel’s proceedings were secret and closed to the public, from jury selection to investigative actions it may have taken.

Steven Davis, the Lawrence resident who petitioned to convene the grand jury, said Wednesday that he was disappointed in the outcome but that he respected the process.
