Hundreds of 'presentments' being handed to prosecutors
Legal experts say presentments have fallen out of favor in most states and the federal system because they are often viewed as prejudicial and inflammatory both to those charged with crimes, such as Mr. Sandusky, and those who aren't, such as Mike McQueary, a Penn State assistant coach who told the grand jury he witnessed an incident in a shower involving Mr. Sandusky and a young boy.
The use of presentments was common in the early part of the century but is now infrequent in many states and extremely rare in the federal system.
A spokesman for Linda Kelly, the prosecutor in the case and Pennsylvania's attorney general, said presentments are typical in cases brought by the attorney general's office.
