Due to typo, councilman will get opportunity to speak before grand jury

The Lubbock County District Attorney says Councilman John Leonard will have the opportunity to speak before a grand jury. 

On Tuesday, a Grand Jury no billed three aggravated assault cases. The suspects allegedly assaulted Leonard at his apartment at the end of December. Leonard tells NewsChannel 11 that he didn't know his case was presented until after the grand jury had made a decision. He says the District Attorney's office sent him a letter to appear before the grand jury, but says it was dated February 19th, not February 10th. The district attorney's office says there was a typo in the letter sent to Leonard.

Leonard says he was assaulted on the front porch of his then southwest Lubbock apartment just before 1 a.m. on December 24, 2008. Leonard took pictures of blood spots left behind following the alleged attack. He says the assault left him with broken facial bones, and a broken nose.

Late Wednesday afternoon, Matt Powell told us if there was a miscommuncation Leonard will be given the opportunity to speak to the same grand jury at the end of the month.
