(a) Disclosure of matters occurring before the grand jury other than its deliberations
and the vote of any juror shall be made to the prosecuting attorney for use in the
performance of such attorney's duties.
(b) Otherwise a juror, attorney, interpreter, reporter or any typist who transcribes
recorded testimony shall not disclose matters occurring before the grand jury except,
upon court order:
(1) The testimony of a witness before the grand jury may be disclosed to a defendant
to determine whether it is consistent with testimony given before the court, but only
upon a showing of good cause;
(2) evidentiary materials presented to one grand jury may be disclosed to a succeeding
grand jury; and
(3) grand jury testimony by a defendant may be disclosed to such defendant, but only
in the criminal action resulting from such testimony.
(c) No obligation of secrecy may be imposed upon any person except in accordance with
this section. The court may direct that an indictment shall be kept secret until the defendant
is in custody or has given bail, and in that event the clerk shall seal the indictment
and no person shall disclose the finding of the indictment except when necessary for
the issuance and execution of a warrant or summons.
