Special Grand Jury seated, will focus on BISD

12News has learned that a special investigative grand jury was seated Tuesday at the request of the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office.

A source inside the courthouse told 12News the special grand jury will focus on allegations that involve the Beaumont Independent School District.

Evidence concerning the school district will be presented to the grand jury as it becomes available and jury members will make determinations and possibly hand up indictments based on that evidence.

A source inside the courthouse said it is not expected that any indictments would be handed up until late Summer simply because it takes time for an investigative grand jury to put a case together.

Jefferson County District Clerk Jane Birge said this is the first time in recent history that a special grand jury has been seated.  She went on to say some of the old timers could not remember the last time one was seated.
