RIGHT TO COPY OF TRANSCRIPT

In light of the possibility of prosecution even for “inconsistent” answers before the grand jury, and since neither the spirit nor letter of FED. R. CRIM. PRO. Rule 6(e) precludes a witness from obtaining a transcript of his own testimony, the witness who is recalled before a grand jury should be provided a transcription of that testimony.

 

Bursey v. U.S., 466 F.2d 1059 (9th Cir. 1972);

In re Minkoff, 346 F.Supp. 154 (D.R.I. 1972);

In re Russo, 53 F.R.D. 564 (C.D. Cal. 1971).

See also Brown v. U.S., 245 F.2d 549 (8th Cir. 1957).

 

A witness should be entitled to a transcript of his own testimony, otherwise he cannot be held in contempt for refusal to testify. In re Ferris, 512 F. Supp. 91 (D.C. Nev. 1981) (permitting a witness to disclose his own testimony will not interfere with a grand juror’s ability to deliberate and vote in secret).
