18. There's no requirement that results be

released within a certain number of hours of decision. In fact, I believe if there's an indictment, it's probably to remain sealed until the indicted person is in custody. Caveat on that - That may vary by jurisdiction, and I'm not very familiar with that jurisdiction.

Also, I believe I read the prosecutor said he'd try to get the details released publicly of the testimony and other evidence presented to the grand jury. If there's an indictment, he will not do that because it will come out at trial. If there is no indictment, he has to ask the court to order the release, and that is not something that happens instantly.
