Grand Jury Chair’s Felony Record Uncovered, 800 Cases in Question

Indictments from nearly 900 cases in the Nashville area are under review after officials discovered that 2011 grand jury chair Eugene Grayer is a convicted felon. According to the ABA Journal, an appeals court is set to decide whether any of the cases will need to be retried. Grayer was convicted of theft in 1977, but his felony status was not uncovered until he applied for a handgun permit and underwent a background check.
