UPDATED: Grand Jury Considered, But Declined To Indict Bannister

The Gwinnett County Grand Jury investigating the County’s parkland purchases considered indicting former Commission Chair Charles Bannister for perjury for making false statements, but declined.  The Grand Jury continues its work and will meet again on October 22.  Until then, the work of the Grand Jury and the fates of Bannister, Commissioner Kevin Kenerly and others remains unknown.

UPDATE:  Charles Bannister cut a deal with the Grand Jury to resign as Commission Chair to avoid indictment.

Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge Michael Clark ordered the work of the Grand Jury be kept under seal until October 22.  Commissioner Kenerly formally objected to the Grand Jury filing a motion last week challenging its work. That motion is also under seal.
