Las Vegas Optic Managing Editor David Giuliani expressed surprise during an interview this morning at how quickly the grand jury indicted PRC Commissioner Jerome Block Jr. Wednesday.
Giuliani and others testified before the District Court grand jury in Santa Fe March 25 regarding reports that Block Jr. lied to newspaper reporters about his educational background, past arrests and other information.
Giuliani received a second subpoena to testify before the grand jury, which reconvened Wednesday. He was there in case jurors had additional questions, he said, adding that he was surprised when told at about 10 a.m. that he could leave, and the indictments came before noon.
“I didn’t expect the grand jury to make the indictments so quickly,” Giuliani said.
He also expressed surprise that Jerome Block Sr. was indicted.
“In all my reporting, I had no idea the father was involved in this,” Giuliani said.
The office of Attorney General Gary King, which is prosecuting the case, provided no explanation of the charges or of the elder Block’s alleged involvement. A spokesman for the AG told the Associated Press there would be no comment.
