Kansas Grand Jury Declines to Indict Tiller
After a six-month investigation, a Kansas Grand Jury adjourned on Wednesday without issuing a criminal indictment against NAF member Dr. George Tiller.
In a statement released by the Sedgwick County district attorney’s office, the grand jury said: “After six months of conducting an investigation that included hearing extensive witness testimony, reviewing volumes of documents and medical records of patients of Women’s Health Care Services (Tiller’s Wichita clinic), this grand jury has not found sufficient evidence to bring an indictment on any crime related to the abortion laws.”
Kansas is one of six states that permit citizen-petitioned grand juries. Throughout his career, Tiller has consistently been targeted by anti-abortion extremists. His clinic has been vandalized, his staff and patients have been repeatedly harassed, and in 1993 Tiller was shot and injured by an anti-abortion extremist.
