Moving Forward In The Patrick Kane Case

Folks, we’re all just going to have to be patient and let the legal process work, as frustrating as that may seem to those who believe a crime has been committed.

Nothing has changed. Hopefully, something will soon. A man stands accused, and a woman has made serious allegations she was sexually assaulted.

Both have rights. The system needs to work as quickly as possible. The public wants answers.

The next step is for the district attorney to review Eoannou’s complaint and determine where the truth lies. If the rape kit was indeed tampered with, the district attorney may be looking at a weaker case against Kane and may elect to alter its course of action. Thereafter, the district attorney will consider whether the case will still be sent to a grand jury, which decides whether Kane will be formally charged. Generally, the district attorney will send a case to a grand jury if he or she believes there is a reasonable chance of securing a conviction at trial. However, that does not always occur, as some high profile cases with inconclusive evidence may still be sent to the grand jury for deliberation. The idea in those circumstances is to let an impartial group of ordinary citizens test the evidence and have them make their own determination.
