Resist the Grand Jury! Come out and support Nadia!
On Thursday, August 17, at 9:00 a.m., animal advocate Nadia Winstead is scheduled to appear before a federal grand jury at the Federal Courthouse (450 Golden Gate Ave.). Winstead had appeared before the grand jury earlier this year, whereupon she asserted her right to remain silent. Although she was released from that subpoena before the term of the grand jury expired in March, she was re-subpoenaed in July to a newly-formed grand jury. As she did previously, Winstead is expected to exercise her Constitutionally-protected right to remain silent, an action for which she could face an indefinite period of incarceration.
