Serving Dallas-Fort Worth And All Of North Texas
As the former foreman of the Collin County Grand Jury (2008), Keith Gore brings a unique perspective to representing clients in the grand jury process.
In order to charge someone with a felony offense, the prosecution must first obtain a grand jury indictment. Unless that right is affirmatively waived by the accused, a prosecution for a felony offense cannot proceed to court without a grand jury indictment. If a grand jury indicts a charge then they return what is called a “true bill” of indictment. On the other hand, if the grand jury does not indict, they return a “no-bill.”
In Texas state court, the accused can generally present information to the grand jury through the prosecutor in charge. Knowing whether and what information to present to a Texas state grand jury can make the difference between being indicted, no-billed or charged with a lesser crime.
Keith Gore has obtained “no-bills” for clients charged with a broad range of felony offenses, including:
- Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
- Possession of a controlled substance (cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin)
- Attempted murder
- Assault family violence (enhanced with prior convictions)
- Sexual assault
- Indecency with a child
- Driving while intoxicated 3rd offense

- Burglary of a habitation
