POWERS AND DUTIES OF GRAND JURY
19-1123. Secrecy enjoined — Exceptions — Use and availability of evidence. (1) No individual, who is present during a special inquiry judge proceeding or who shall gain information with regard to said inquiry, shall disclose the testimony of a witness examined before the special inquiry judge or other evidence received by him, except such testimony or evidence may be disclosed in the following cases: when the district court requires disclosure of such testimony to determine whether it is consistent with testimony given by the witness before district court; by a prosecuting attorney when communicating with any law enforcement officer; upon a charge against the witness for perjury in giving his testimony in the special inquiry judge proceeding or upon trial therefor; or when permitted by the district court in the furtherance of justice.
(2) The prosecuting attorney shall have access to all special inquiry judge evidence and may introduce such evidence before any grand jury or judicial proceeding in which the same may be relevant.
(3) Any witness testimony, given before a special inquiry judge and relevant to any subsequent proceeding against the witness, shall be made available to the witness upon proper application to the district court. The district court may also, upon proper application and upon a showing of good cause, make available to a defendant in a subsequent criminal proceeding other testimony or evidence when given or presented before a special inquiry judge, if the court finds that doing so is necessary to prevent an injustice and that there is no reason to believe that doing so would endanger the life or safety of any witness or his family. The cost of any such transcript made available shall be borne by the applicant.
