Is my testimony recorded?

Answer provided by Teresa C. Zalcman.

Yes.  It is usually recorded and transcribed by a certified court reporter, although other means of recordation are possible.  In order for this testimony to disclosed outside the grand jury, a party, most usually the government, must file a motion to disclose grand jury testimony.  The most common way that people outside the grand jury learn abut the substance of our testimony is when a transcipt of that testimony is turned over to a defendant because it contained evidence that might tend to prove the defendant’s innocence or because your testimony is deemed necessary by the government.
