Last Friday a witness refused to testify before the grand jury, and he was taken before the court for “further instructions”. Judge Dawkins emphatically told the rebellious witness that he must either answer the questions or go to jail.

So all well until possibly some person shall be brought before the bar of justice for what the witness unwillingly gave away.
